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

The child elements specified in the presentation element must correspond to those defined in the elements element of the .admx file. The Group Policy Object Editor will display an error if there is not a matching presentation child element for an existing elements child element.

This XML fragment is an example of a presentation element that contains the corresponding elements for a text box parameter declared through the elements element.

      <presentation id="Sample_Textbox">
        <textBox refId="Sample_TextboxPrompt">
          <label>Prompt label for textbox</label>
        </textBox>
      </presentation>
