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

If the elements element is defined, it must contain at least one child element. The number and type of elements defined in the .admx file must match the presentation elements defined in the corresponding .adml file.

This XML fragment is an example of the elements specifying two check box parameters.

        <boolean id="Checkbox_1" valueName="Example2Checkbox1">
          <trueValue>
            <decimal value="1" />
          </trueValue>
          <falseValue>
            <decimal value="0" />
          </falseValue>
        </boolean>
