How do you set a default value on new record - when AddNew is called?  I can't seem to add to the Domain Service metadata - not even sure if that would work. 
thanks again!

 <telerik:RadButton RenderTransformOrigin="0.5,0.5" Style="{StaticResource HeaderCircleButtonStyle}" Margin="0,0,40,0" 
                          Command="telerik:RadDataFormCommands.AddNew" CommandTarget="{Binding ElementName=matterForm}" Tag="ADD"/ >

Hi Jon,

You can try handling AddedNewItem event of RadDataForm and set the values you want to be predefined:

private void DataForm1_AddedNewItem(object sender, AddedNewItemEventArgs e)
        {
            (this.DataForm1.CurrentItem as Club).Name = "NewName";
        }
 
In you want to perform this operation only in your ViewModel, you can bind CurrentItem property of RadDataForm to a one in this ViewModel, create a new command that will add an item with default values and set this command to be the one for your button.

Thanks that worked.. But shouldn't you be able to set [Default] in the RIA MetaData class?
