I have a custom control that allows a user to create work items. To provide defaults for the field I need to somehow access the default value for a Field via TFS 2010 API. How can I do it? I know how to get allowed values but how to get the default value?

Thanks for your post and sorry for the late response.
However, I can’t better understand your issue. Could you please offer me more information?
Why do you want to get the default value of one field in the TFS work item?
If you create one new work item, and don’t set the value to that default field, that filed will be set to that default value. And if you set value for that default field, the default value will be over-written by the value you set.
And after you create that work item, you can just read the default value.
If the scenario I described is not the same as you, please proved me more information so I can better understand your issue.

Friday, October 14, 2011 1:37 PMHello! I have a custom TFS editor I created for my own purposes. And I need to populate the work item fields wiuth default values when a user creates new work item using my editor. So I need to know these default values programmatically before I try to save the work item.
