Required Category problem


I've ran into a little problem. I would like to set the selection of a category as a required property for a pagetype (it's used to categorize news subjects and needs to be set)... Therefor it should show up among the required properties once you create a page of the pagetype I have in mind. Anyone ideas on how I could solve this?

I've been trying to create a custom property rendering checkboxes ( list but I haven't yet gotten this to work with 7.5... Thankful for help!

<p>Couldn't you add your own Category property and set it to required? Or even override the standard definition and add the required to it</p>

<p>That sounds like a plan to me... Seems like this would be a rather common problem and I believe it has been solved before :) Could you maybe elaborate a bit about overriding the standard definition - Know of any good examples?</p>

<p>Hmm first I thought I could just override the property Category and add the required attribute but seems that didn't work.</p> <p></p> <p>Instead lets work with the descriptor. If you use <a href="">Joel's code </a>and just add&nbsp;</p> <pre class="brush:html;auto-links:false;toolbar:false" contenteditable="false">metadata.IsRequired = true;</pre> <p></p>
