SetDefaultValues on local block properties not possible?

Vote:
 

Does not seem to work ... data specified is not set.

The local block is inside another shared block, and i can set default values on other properties on the shared block (just not the properties on the local blocks)

Have you tried to set the default values on the local block through the shared block's SetDefaultValues?

Example:

public override void SetDefaultValues(ContentType contentType)
{
	LocalBlock.PropertyOnLocalBlock = "value";
}

You probably know this, but also be aware of that SetDefaultValues only kicks in when creating the content type.

Yeah your suggestion does not work. But I did find a solution ... strangely enough this works:

public override void SetDefaultValues(ContentType contentType)
{
    LocalBlock.Property["PropertyOnLocalBlock"].Value = "value";
}
