    RFE Review. Whilst there have only been 3 votes for this enhancement request, we still see long term benefit and agree that adding the option for an enumerated list in the Toolkit UI would bring improved usability for development usecases. We have some precedence in this area with enumerated values defined as part of user-defined pattern configuration which could be helpful here. Status of RFE is maintained as Uncommitted Candidate.

    Thank you for raising this RFE, which sounds like a good future enhancement. We are interested generally in expanding the set of allowed User Defined Property types (eg Table based properties would be a very similar and beneficial area), so thank you for logging the requirement. Status is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
