Today we tried to have this in a view’s parameters section:
int id = default(int);
It won’t work.
Internally, AspView looks for a parameter (in the PropertyBag, Flash, Form, QueryString etc.) with the name “id”.
Now if it is not found, it should set to “default(int)”. The problem is duw to a bug in AspViewBase (which is the base class for all views) that sets a null value if the property is not found, thus failing the cast to value type (you cannot (int)null).
I’ll add a test, fix the bug, and commit it, hopefully by this weekend.
Meanwhile, we “solved” the problem by using:
object id = default(int);
