Django OSMGeoAdmin with PointField uses OpenLayers and it's hard to use.

I want to add two new input elements which are lat and lng. Using jQuery, when values of the input elements are changed, I want to change point on the OpenLayers.

How can I do that?

No complete code or instructions are necessary, main idea is enough.

i dont know is there any difference with geodjando and OSMGeoAdmin but in normal geodjango if you want to update any field, you can use following code:

def updateVal(request):
  poId = request.POST.get("pointID", default=0)
  objGeo = request.POST.get("meta", default=0)

  f = Points.objects.get(id = poId)

      f.geom = objGeo 
      res = "OK"
      res = "ERROR"

i hope it helps you...

  • You could pass an argument to this from the browser using an ajax request.
