1) I was trying to set a default value for an OptionSetField in the cms, but just can't get it to work. Part of the code I used was http://pastie.caboo.se/124284.. tried a couple of other things too but just didn't get it to work. Note that I'm also using the populateDefaults method, so maybe that is interfering/overwriting?

2) How can I set some fields as required? Can I do a new RequiredFields somewhere? Is there any method for it?

thnx

ok..

When doing

$countries = DataObject::get("Country");
$this->CountryID = $countries->First()->ID;

in the populateDefaults method it seems to work. Apparently setting a default value in the getcmsfields-method doesn't mix with it.

Still interested in knowing how to make fields required in the backend though.
