What is the use case for Produce Reference Do Not Show a Widget

Maybe I am misunderstanding something, however I was under the assumption that the Do Not Show a Widget "widget" for Product Reference fields could be used for a Pay to Publish functionality. That is, don't display the widget, and instead have a default value.

There doesn't seem to be a way to set a default value if you use "Do Not Show a Widget" though. Possibly a bug, or am I just not understanding something?

When choosing the "Do not show a widget", no widget to add or manage your products will be displayed on the product node create/edit form !

As the API documentation says, it's used only when your managing your products references programatically:

  • Do not show the widget on forms; useful in cases where reference fields have a lot of data that is maintained automatically.

Hope that helps !
