custom property not displaying at folder creation or Details screen

Hello everyone

I have created a custom boolean property that I need to have displayed both at folder creation and in the Details screen of a folder after it's created. The property is in the default namespace, and is in the Custom group. I have created a properties file for the label and created the necessary meta data extension. The folder validity pattern is " / " and the Resource Type listed is "normalct" so that it's active for folders only.

Then I went to Property Groups and listed my new property in the Group Items field of the Custom group. The Custom group is a part of "all_groups" so that group is displayed both when a new folder is created in KM and when the Details screen of a folder is displayed.

<i>However,</i> my custom property isn't displaying under the Custom tab when I go to create a new KM folder, nor when I view the Details screen of an existing folder. What configuration am I missing? Do I have to develop a custom property renderer for each new property I need to create? I was hoping I could achieve this result with configuration changes only, but I must be missing something.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and rewarded.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Fallon,

actualy, if you want this property to be displayed only for folders and not for documents, you don't need to specify the resource type for folders. Setting "/" or "/**" for "Folder Validity Patterns" and "" (empty) for "Document Validity Patterns" should be enough.

If you sill experience problems, you have to check all settings, for example with the settings suggested in this <a href="">weblog</a>. If you use the "default" Property Group in the property settings, you don't have to enter the <b>Property ID</b> in a special Property Structure Group that in turn is integrated in the all_groups Property Structure Group.

Hope this helps,
