Array of the strings from which you can select in the combo box control. Use the Strings And Values () property to specify custom values for each string.

If you use this property with a combo box control that has custom values, the number of values for the combo box control determines the number of strings you can set using this property. For example, if the combo box control has the values Free, Discount, and Full, you can set only three strings using this property.

If the combo box control has more values than the number of strings you wire to this property, LabVIEW creates strings for any values that do not have corresponding strings. For example, if the combo box control has the values Free, Discount, and Full and you wire the strings Voucher and Coupon to this property, LabVIEW sets the last string to <Full>.

This property is similar to the Edit Items item on the shortcut menu of a combo box control and to the Labels option on the Edit Items page of the Combo Box Properties dialog box.
