To set the default value on a single field, use
    $field->default( $value );

To do the same for multiple fields, do
        field1 => $value1,
        field2 => $value2,

For a more complicated set (read: nested blocks/fields), see

If you use any of these, you must then always call $form->process()
before displaying the form to the user.
