DynamicContentPlugin generates out of bounds exception



I'm trying to create a very simple dynamiccontentplugin but when I've added it to the page and click on the publish button I get an error:

"Index was outside the bounds of the array."

Stack trace:

[IndexOutOfRangeException: Index was outside the bounds of the array.]

Any ideas on how to resolve this? This feature should work out of the box without any problems.

Apparently the exception was thrown because I hadn't added any properties to the class.

When I added, for example,

public string MyProperty { get; set; }

there was no error.

Seems weird that you have to have at least one property to get the dynamic content to work properly...

Now this is an interesting feature. What if I don't need any properties...?
