enum Element

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

The enum element sets the specified registry subkey to a specified value or a list of registry subkeys to values chosen from a drop-down list when a policy setting is enabled through the Group Policy Object Editor.

<enum    id="<placeholderID>"
         clientExtension="<placeholderGUID>"
         key="<placeholderRegKey>"
         valuename="<placeholderName>"
         required="true|false" >
     <item> … </item>
</enum >

noteNote
For simplicity of documentation, nested elements located one level down, known as child elements, will only be described for a given element.

The enum element is generally associated with a drop-down list parameter in the Group Policy Object Editor.

The enum element will require a matching dropdownList element in the corresponding .adml file with id that matches as declared in the enum element.

This XML fragment is an example of an enum element thatis associated with a choice of three values with different display names in a drop-down list.

        <enum id="Sample_Dropdownlist_Box" 
                 valueName="Example2DropDownList" required="true">
          <item displayName="$(string.Sample_DropDownList_First)">
            <value>
              <decimal value="1" />
            </value>
          </item>
          <item displayName="$(string.Sample_DropDownList_Second)">
            <value>
              <decimal value="2" />
            </value>
          </item>
          <item displayName="$(string.Sample_DropDownList_Third)">
            <value>
              <decimal value="3" />
            </value>
          </item>
        </enum>

This XML fragment is an example of an enum element that is associated with a choice of two sets of values (defined in ADM files as an ACTIONLIST) with different display names in a drop-down list.

     <elements>
        <enum id="enum_example" valueName="exampleValueName" required="true">
          <item displayName="$(string.displayChoice1)">
            <value>
              <decimal value="1" />
            </value>
            <valueList>
              <item key="Software\Policies\Examples\1" valueName="1">
                <value>
                  <decimal value="3" />
                </value>
              </item>
              <item key="Software\Policies\Examples\2" valueName="2">
                <value>
                  <decimal value="3" />
                </value>
              </item>
            </valueList>
          </item>
          <item displayName="$(string.displayChoice2)">
            <value>
              <decimal value="2" />
            </value>
            <valueList>
              <item key="Software\Policies\Examples\1" valueName="1">
                <value>
                  <decimal value="1" />
                </value>
              </item>
              <item key="Software\Policies\Examples\2" valueName="2">
                <value>
                  <decimal value="3" />
                </value>
              </item>
