Array of up to 4 strings. Strings include text for False, True, True to False, and False to True.

If you set the Boolean control to allow multiple strings, this property always returns an array of four strings when reading. When writing, you can pass in an array of length 1, 2 or 4. If you pass in only one element, this property uses that element value for all four states. If you pass in two elements, this property uses the first element value for the False and True to False states. Similarly, this property uses the second element for the True and False to True states.

If you do not set the Boolean control to allow multiple strings, this property returns an array of one string when reading, and uses the first array element when writing.

This property only uses the True to False and False to True states when you set the Boolean control to latch or switch when released. You can get and set these strings even if you do not have the control set to latch or switch when released; they just are not used.
