[gdal-dev] OGR SetField() doesn't work

    You should use Layer.SetFeature(feat) to trigger the update in your shape file.

Objet : [gdal-dev] OGR SetField() doesn't work

Hi all,

I'm trying to set a value on an existing field and existing Shapefile with python-ogr but it doesn't seems to work.
Here is my works :

import ogr
import math
import os

layerNameF = os.path.join("myShape.shp")   
driver = ogr.GetDriverByName("ESRI Shapefile")                    

Layer = driver.Open(layerNameF, True).GetLayer(0)

for i in range(Layer.GetFeatureCount()) :
    feat = Layer.GetFeature(i)            
    u = feat.GetFieldAsDouble('u10m')
    v = feat.GetFieldAsDouble('v10m') 
    vitesse = math.sqrt((u**2)+(v**2))                      
    print type(feat.GetFieldAsDouble('wspeed'))
    print feat.GetFieldAsDouble('wspeed')


the print feat.GetFieldAsDouble('wspeed') show me the good values. But when I open It again with Qgis or python the value is still 0.0.

Do you know what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks for any help
