When using the sharepoint api to add field links to a content type, with code similar to the following:
AddFieldLink(siteField, contentype); contentype.Update(true, true);
I have specified true, in the update method to ensure that the field is mandatory. When I then edit an item of this content type in the UI will it ensure that this field contains a value i.e. will the field for this meta data be mandatory?
all the best
