How to allow updating attributes automatically and manually with editor widget?

Hello, I'm trying to create an editing web map that will automatically update the coordinates of an added/moved point and also allow manual edits to other attributes. I was able to get the coordinates to update, based on this code I found on stack exchange.


Below is what I have in my HTML and seems to work whenever I add or move a point.

dojo.forEach(featLayers, function(feature) {
feature.on("before-apply-edits", updateCoordinates);


function updateCoordinates(evt) {
var toAdd = evt.adds;
dojo.forEach(toAdd, function(add) {
add.attributes.point_y = add.geometry.getLatitude();
add.attributes.point_x = add.geometry.getLongitude();

var toUpdate = evt.updates;
dojo.forEach(toUpdate, function(update) {
update.attributes.point_y = update.geometry.getLatitude();
update.attributes.point_x = update.geometry.getLongitude();


However, when I manually type in text for another attribute that is entered during the editing, I get these error messages in the console as shown in the attached graphic. Line #305 in the console refers to the above code line #10 update.attributes.point_y = update.geometry.getLatitude();


The attributes I manually update are not saved most of the time.


Any help is much appreciated!
