Dashboard PreValue Editor

Allows you to edit prevalues for certain (configurable) datatypes on the dashboard.

This is a very quick hack together for a client demo so don't expect polish and quality - the source is linked and the project is open for collab if you wish to enhance.

Built against .net 4 and Umbraco 4.7

The concept is that for some datatypes e.g. lists of client - the content user may want to edit the prevalues but you don't want to give them access to the datatypes in the developer section.

The UI also provides a nice way to very quickly add lists.

A key is required in web.config (appsettings) that specifies which datatypes are displayed by the dashboard control:

<add key="dashPreValueDataTypes" value="Dropdown,Checkbox list" />

By default the installer adds a new tab to the content section but you can obviously modify dashboard.config and place this wherever you wish.
