Feature request #9535
Set standard value in value map

It would be great if you could be able to set a standard value in the value map edit widget. This standard value should then automatically be selected in the dropbox when you create a new object. As it is now the values are just sorted alphabetical in the dropbox and the first value is chosen.

This should be defined on the field and not on a widget IMO.
It is about the same level of abstraction as the domains/constraints discussed in Brighton.
I don't think this necessarily conflicts with default values by providers. This feature would need to be enabled explicitly and if disabled provider defaults should be used.

I think this can be closed. The widget can now default to NULL values, or alternatively users can set default values for fields in a multitude of different ways. Together these address the intended use case described here.
