[Required] Checkbox issue

Vote:
 

Hello! I want a checkbox to show up instantly when creating a page. To do this with other types I just add the [Required] attribute to the property. However, it works differently with checkboxes, because for it to be treated as specified it needs to be set to true. If I put required on it it will show up but if I don't check it (as in set it to true) I can't create the page.

Is there any other way I can make it show on page creation not using [Required]?

[Display(
            Name = "Visa bild publikt",
            Description = "Om denna är ikryssad så visas bilden även om man inte är inloggad",
            GroupName = SystemTabNames.Content,
            Order = 600
        )]
        [CultureSpecific]
        [Required]
        public virtual bool ShowImagePublic { get; set; }

Not sure if this works, but what if you create an image block with this property and the image, and set the block property to required?

I'd say it's a flaw in the design, aka a bug.

Btw, we've solved similar situations earlier with using a select with Not set/True/False instead of having a checkbox.

It would be nice if it worked to use a checkbox but apparently it doesn't, for now using a select with values yes, and no will suffice.

Thanks for the help!
