No edit button appears


Just upgraded to Umbraco 6.2.1 and dewd 2.1
using the xml config option. I can insert and delete, but not edit the records.
Any ideas as to what I am missing?

reverted back to dewd 1.4 and it works. but the media picker type errors out upon save.

Unable to save:
Operand type clash: int is incompatible with text

Does the same thing with ntext types

Hi Sharon,

Sorry about the late reply, I've been busy (kind of a bad habit at this point).

Can you send the xml-config, you're using for dewd 2.1? About the media picker - not sure how much that's been tested actually, because I've never had the need myself. Are you just using a standard media picker data-type?

Yes, the standard media picker with a text field on database table

I wound up bumping back to 1.4,

adding the “type=TextField” attribute to the config Media Picker field element

<field title="Store Image" sourceField="store_image" umbracoDataType="Media Picker" type="TextField"><nullable /></field>

and then downloading the source to make a few changes by adding a “textField.cs” that seemed to have solved the media picker problem.

namespace Eksponent.Dewd.Fields
public class TextField : Field
    public TextField(XElement fieldElement, IEditor editor)
        : base(fieldElement, editor)

    public override void ProcessValueBeforeSave(ref object value)
        string stringValue = value.ToString() ;
        value = stringValue;
        base.ProcessValueBeforeSave(ref value);
