Compatible Datatypes

Using custom datatypes

By default, only datatypes that are verified are enabled and selectable from the prevalue editor.
To enable a non-default datatype, go to {your-umbraco-folder}\config and open the file DataTypeGrid.config.

Add your datatype guid to the <CompatibleDataTypes> section like this:

<add guid="6c738306-4c17-4d88-b9bd-6546f3771597"/>

Recycle the application pool in IIS or touch the web.config file.

You can now use your datatype with DataType Grid.
