I have noted in another thread that customizing the default value of IterationPath and AreaPath is not possible. What I want to do, however, is set the default view of these fields to blank instead of showing the name of the project by default. I've tried playing around with SUGGESTEDVALUES, but it seems incompatible with the TreePath type. Is this possible, or have I used SUGGESTEDVALUES incorrectly Here is what it looks like:

<SUGGESTEDVALUES expanditems="true">

<LISTITEM value="None" />

</SUGGESTEDVALUES>

TreePath fields do not support any rules, so you won't be able to define suggested values for them. We are considering allowing some rules on these fields, but it won't be in our 2008 release.

One option would be to use custom contol for Area/Iteration path which would represent data from these fields in a way you want.

Hmm, thanks for the tips.

Implementing custom control looks like a bit more time/complexity than I'd planned on spending for this relatively cosmetic feature. I think I'll just leave it alone.

Thanks again.
