Hi, I have looked in the documentation and also in the forum but didn't find anything. So is it even possible with DO to set some default values on fields like:

[Field (DefaultValue(typeof(int), 100))] public int Number {get;set;}

thanks, David

One Answer:

There is really no way to do this - at least, currently. Only "default defaults" are supported. Partially, this is because of schema upgrade layer - it's much easier to deal with defaults there.

But you can:

  • Set default in constructor (in particular, relying on reflection or any other "defaults provider" you can invent)

  • Manually update newly created columns with non-standard defaults on upgrade using UpgradeHander, if this is necessary.
