Subject Re: Creating NodeType with dynamic, linked properties
Date Mon, 04 Dec 2006 10:17:40 GMT
Hi all,

This definitely seems to be a good idea for several occasions.
I'd like to re-use this idea for defining locales, and using them to
determine the locale for content items.
But how can I restrict the type of a reference in the cnd file?

Thanks,
Marcel
