Custom Property Problem

  Asked By: Edmond    Date: May 23    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1625

I'm trying to place a custom property in a web part that is a boolean
value and I get the following error.

Web Part Error: One of the properties of the Web Part has an
incorrect format. Windows SharePoint Services cannot deserialize the
Web Part. Check the format of the properties and try again.

If I change the property to a string it works just fine but I would
really rather it be a boolean. Does anyone know how to do this?

Here is the property:

Private Const _defaultBool As Boolean = False
Dim _Maintenance As Boolean = _defaultBool

<Browsable(True), Category("Custom Properties"), DefaultValue
(_defaultBool), Description("Performing Maintenance Do Not Show This
Part To Users"), FriendlyName("Maintenance"), [ReadOnly](False),
WebPartStorage(Storage.Shared)> _
Public Property Maintenance() As Boolean
Return _Maintenance
End Get
Set(ByVal Value As Boolean)
_Maintenance = Value
End Set
End Property
