Hiding a property in edit mode


With v4.62, is there a way to hide a property from the editor in edit mode?

I have a new property type which I need to pick up the value in an old property (a string). In order to do this I need the old property to still be valid, but I don't want to show it to the user.


Any ideas?

Attach an event handler to the LoadedPage event of the DataFactory instance and set the OwnerTab property for the property that you want to hide to 0.

What about the "Show in editmode" on the property itself? It's a checkbox when you create the property itself. Or does it loose it's value when you uncheck this box?

Andreas: The checkbox is not available in version 4.x of EPiServer - was introduced in version 5.
