    How do I set a pre value programmatically?

    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to add a list of nodes programmatically and I'm having trouble setting a property that is selected via a dropdown in the cms.

    At the moment I have:

    Document d = Document.MakeNew(rawApartment.AptNo.ToString(), DocumentType.GetByAlias("Apartment"), User.GetCurrent(), GetParentNodeId(rawApartment.Building));
    d.getProperty("status").Value = rawApartment.Status;                

    Where 'rawApartment.Status' is a string that matches the string in the dropdown text however when I check the nodes in the back-end, the dropdown value I entered isn't selected.

    I checked the umbraco.config and it's storing the string value so it's not a case of me having to set the prevalue id.

    How do I do this?
