How do I add a custom inline admin widget in Django

0 votes

This is easy for non-inlines. Just override the following in the your AdminOptions:

def formfield_for_dbfield(self, db_field, **kwargs):
    if == 'photo':
        kwargs['widget'] = AdminImageWidget()
        return db_field.formfield(**kwargs)
    return super(NewsOptions,self).formfield_for_dbfield(db_field,**kwargs)

I can't work out how to adapt this to work for inlines. Any Help?

Hello @kartik,

It works exactly the same way. The TabularInline and StackedInline classes also have a formfield_for_dbfield method, and you override it the same way in your subclass.

Since Django 1.1, formfield_overrides is also working

formfield_overrides = {
    models.ImageField: {'widget': AdminImageWidget},

Hope this helps!
