Default Property Values in code?


I have a property set up like so:

      Name = "Show Foo",
      Description = "Show or hide page Foo",
      GroupName = SystemTabNames.Settings,
      Order = 2
public virtual bool ShowFoo{ get; set; }

How do I set the default value to true? I know I can do this in Admin Mode, but I'm hoping I can do it in code. There's a box on the Page Type Property Editor regarding default values. There has to be something that sets that right?

 Hi Corbin, try to do like this

 public override void SetDefaultValues(ContentType contentType)
            //Set up your defaults here 
          this.ShowFoo = true;

I hope it helps you.
