    custom field default value

    Hi There,
    if i want to set default view to custom field , how do you do this.

    for example for below code , how to enter default value


    public class Textfield : FieldType

        public Textfield() {
            this.Id =newGuid("3F92E01B-29E2-4a30-BF33-9DF5580ED52C");
            this.Name = "Textfield";
            this.Description ="Renders a html input fieldKey";
            this.Icon = "icon-autofill";
            this.DataType = FieldDataType.String;
            this.Category = "Simple";
            this.SortOrder = 10;

    To get this to work for me i added another "using" to the top of the .cs file.

    using Umbraco.Forms.Core.Attributes;

    Then inside your public class Testfield : FieldType i added

    [Setting("DefaultValue", Description = "Enter a default value", View = "TextField")]
        public string DefaultValue { get; set; }

    This should then make an option in the settings when configuring the field to add a Default Value.
