    No pre-value editor on DataType Grid

    Using uComponents with a 4.7 site (works perfectly with several others) but this one, when I create a datatype using the DataType Grid, no prevalue editor appears so I can't add datatypes - I can't find anyone else having this problem, but is there some obvious thing I am missing?

    Hi Rob,

    Which version of uComponents are you using?

    Do you see any error messages, etc?

    Thanks, Lee.

    Ah, found it; the application pool needs write access to ~/plugins/uComponents/DataTypeGrid (and needs to be able to create that folder too)

    Must have missed that in the install instructions this time round.

    Hi Lee, thanks for quick reply - I got an informative message about permissions when I tried to view a content page with my new datatype on it, so managed to fix this.

    Is it an II7 thing? I'm sure I've used the datatype grid before without having to do this.

    Hi Rob, glad you've sorted it.  I haven't heard of a permissions problem for the "plugins/uComponents/DataTypeGrid" folder - but will keep a note for future reference, thanks!

    Cheers, Lee.

    It needed to create PreValueWebService.asmx; each of the datatypes in use has their own folder with a webservice in which seemed to have been created fine, but this site was moved since it wasoriginally set up from IIS6 to 7, which does make me suspicious of that :o)

    I have to say, the current DataType grid kicks ARSE.

    @Rob Watkins Thanks!

    Glad you got it sorted, if you have any ideas for improvement please make a post in Codeplex. I´m planning on doing some improvements on DTG the coming month.
