Warn if property is not set as virtual

Vote:
 

If you create a pagetype with new properties it would be neat if we could get a clear indication or warning if the property isn't set as virtual in code = won't work.

That would save some debugging time in most projects. Is it visible in logs maybe already? I haven't checked. Possible to display in edit /admin?

To me, I get a quite good YSOD with detailed Exception message at site startup if I forget to make a property virtual. Don't you get that?

Don't remember if it only applies when I have the Display attributes though (which to me is essential to add)

I haven't tested it lately, it was a few years back now, but I know I forgot it earlier and just got null back. I saw an other user had the same problem the other day so it seems to still be a small problem sometimes...maybe tweak it a little then I guess :)

It is possible to define the following block:

[ContentType(GUID = "1F8B71EF-4776-4282-A8F0-45A6599FF06F")]
public class MyBlock : BlockData
{
    [UIHint(UIHint.Image)]
    public ContentReference Image { get; set; }
}

Episerver won't throw any exception (ysod), and it will allow editors to store the value in edit mode.

In backend, Image is always null.

There is a bug in the validation if a property is part of an interface (because it is virtual but also final): http://world.episerver.com/support/Bug-list/bug/CMS-3090

Tested the above code and it seems to throw now.
