Custom string property


I would like to build a custom property based on a normal string property. The difference I would like to accomplish is that a would like to change the label depending on a value on the parent page.

Its my first go at a custom property for EPiServer 7 so I have a couple of qustions.

1. Where can I find the default dojo implementation scripts for all properties?

2. Would it be possible to get the parent page and change the label and/or deactivate property? This would have to work when creating a new page.


Any input appreciated.

I saw a previous post asking for something similar. I can't find it but I think we referred to this post from Joel Abrahamsson:

Where you should be able to find your PageData object and from there get the Parent Page.

Once you got whatever your need from the Parent Page I guess you would be able to change the metadata of your property and maybe even change the Label.

I don't have a development environment available but I hope this gives you a push in the right direction.
