I have a simple custom field type which gets a value from the Property Bag and sets that value to a label. This works fine as long as the field is set to Optional (the field is a site column and is part of a site content type), but if I set it to Hidden,
the value doesn't get set.
public override void UpdateFieldValueInItem()
if (this.ControlMode == SPControlMode.New)
this.Value = GetChosenConsole();
Does anyone know why this is and what I need to do in order for it to work even though it's hidden?
