    Default Value in Contour Form


    I'm trying to set a checkbox to be checked by default, is there an easy way to do this ?

    Hi Nawaz,

    You could just create a new fieldtype (a checkbox that is checked by default). Take a look at the Contour shared source code (containing all default components including field types).

    It should only need a minor adjustment to get the fieldtype you want

    Hi Tim,

    I've seen you post this a few times, but looking at the shared source I'm still not sure how to create a new field type. Can you dive into this a bit deeper, or at least give a bit more info?

    Hi Bruce,

    have you checked the contour developer documentaiton at

    Based on this with the shared source it should be fairly simple to create a custom fieldtype. If this doesn't help, let me know what you need and I'll write a step by step guide.
