U4-3727 - Unable to save (or create) datatypes with following property editors: Checkbox list, dropdownlist, radio button list

Duplicates: U4-3661

I just downloaded the new V7 and tried to create a new datatype:

  • name "mycategories"
  • property editor: "checkbox list"

But got this nasty error: '''× Server error: Contact administrator, see log for full details. Failed to save data for data type id 0'''

When I used the "content picker", "email addres" (or other data types), the datatype saves succesfully, but "pre value list based" property editors, return an error!

These are the log items (after i've changed the log4net to debug): 2013-11-26 22:55:21,783 [31] DEBUG Umbraco.Web.UmbracoModule - [Thread 16] Begin request: http://localhost:9473/umbraco/UmbracoApi/Authentication/GetRemainingTimeoutSeconds. 2013-11-26 22:55:21,786 [31] DEBUG Umbraco.Web.UmbracoModule - [Thread 14] Begin request: http://localhost:9473/umbraco/UmbracoApi/DataType/PostSave. 2013-11-26 22:55:22,361 [31] DEBUG Umbraco.Web.UmbracoModule - [Thread 15] Begin request: http://localhost:9473/umbraco/ping.aspx.
