Updating non-nullable field in SQL with default value through dynamic field


I'm running Server 2008 and the 3.5 sp 1 Dynamic Data.

I've got a Dynamic Data application using Entity Framework for its model, and I have a non-nullable datetime field that I don't want to scaffold; I want the database's default value to go in every time. In my partial class in the entity project, I've decorated the field with [Scaffold(false)], and I've also set the field setter to be private. The field does not render out to the page (good), but it still expects a value and breaks when I try to submit the rest of my fields exposed in a DetailsView control. If I include the field, take off the scaffold attribute, make the setter public, and enter a value for it, it works (of course).

How do we deal with default values? Actually, my ideal solution would enable me to edit the field on some pages and leave it off the page on others, that is, I'd like to scaffold it selectively.

I've already tried the solutions on

Working with a Non-Nullable Field with a Default Value in SQL Server Table Definition
In a couple of the tables I'm using in a DD application, I have a Created field. It is set to the smalldatetime SQL Server data type, doesn't allow nulls, and has a default value defined in the table of getdate().Here is the behavior I want for this field: I want it to appear on the List and Details pages, but not on the Edit or Insert pages. And when I insert a new record on the Insert page, I want it to get the default value set in the database. In other words, I don’t want to write code in the Web app to set the value (which doesn’t seem to be easy using LINQ to SQL, but that’s no...

Dynamic Data with ASPNET Data Service-Nullable Fields
 Hi,Firstly if this has been asked before, my apologies, but the forum search feature seems to be on holiday or strike today I have downloaded the  Dynamic Data Futures samples and am looking at the Dynamic Data site using the ASPNET Data Services provider and I have a stupid question/problem:Problem: All fields seem to be being treated as required, even if they are nullable??Example:Open the DD site, navigate to the Suppliers Table, click edit, make no changes, then click update. You get a validation message for each blank field saying that it is required.Checking the schema (edm...

Set service field value in Dynamic Data
In my project many tables are linked to aspnet_Application table by ApplicationId foreign key. I don't want the users to view or edit it, so how can I preset this value programmatically before the insert query is executed? I still have scaffolding enabled for this column (in order for DD to generate the right sql script) but I'm hiding this column/field in all my edit/list/insert pages. So ideally I'm looking for a place to inject my code right before DynamicInsert is executed for any table in my LinqToSql class. Thanks You can hide the column with [Scaffold(false)] and then...

SQL statement for querying data with dynamic fields
I am working on a project in which a customer wants to be able to list and search their inventory and display the items in a table/grid on a web page.Each item in their inventory has a set of properties - for example, manufacturer, price, serial number, name, etc.  The complicated part is that they want an admin to be able to modify/add/delete the set of properties.  So for example, they could add the attribute "size."   Given that, I think what is needed is 3 tables - one to store the set of properties schema, one for the items, and one to store the a...

SQL Update Statement Set Field Value to Column Default
Is there a way to set a field value to the column default in an update statement? Eg. UPDATE Table2 SET field1 = DefaultValue where DefaultValue is the field1 column default in the table definition. The reason I need to do this is when I delete a record from Table1, I need to set the foreign key in Table2 to the default (I don't want to delete the record in Table2, just want to set the key to a default key). I could hard-code the default value in the stored procedure but I think that's just not clean. If I create a new instance of the DB and the default value changes, ...
