Admin add popup

This enables that green + icon:


The user can click, a popup window lets them create a new object, they click save, the popup closes and the AjaxSelect field is set.

Your Admin must inherit from AjaxSelectAdmin:

class YourModelAdmin(AjaxSelectAdmin):

or be used as a mixin class:

class YourModelAdmin(AnotherAdminClass, AjaxSelectAdmin):

or you must implement get_form yourself:

from ajax_selects.fields import autoselect_fields_check_can_add

class YourModelAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):

  def get_form(self, request, obj=None, **kwargs):
      form = super(YourModelAdmin, self).get_form(request, obj, **kwargs)
      autoselect_fields_check_can_add(form, self.model, request.user)
      return form

The User must also have permission to create an object of that type, as determined by the standard Django permission system. Otherwise the resulting pop up will just deny them.

Custom Permission Check

You could implement a custom permission check in the LookupChannel:

from permissionz import permissions

class YourLookupChannel(LookupChannel):

    def can_add(self, user, model):
        return permissions.has_perm('can_add', model, user)

Inline forms in the Admin

If you are using ajax select fields on an Inline you can use these superclasses:

from ajax_select.admin import AjaxSelectAdminTabularInline, AjaxSelectAdminStackedInline
# or use this mixin if already have a superclass
from ajax_select.admin import AjaxSelectAdminInlineFormsetMixin
