When you configure the list of items for a ring control, you can assign a specific numeric value to each item. If you do not assign specific numeric values to the items, LabVIEW assigns sequential values that correspond to the order of the items in the list, starting with a value of 0 for the first item.
Complete the following steps to assign a specific numeric value to an item in a ring control.
|Note The value you enter must be a valid value for the numeric representation of the ring control. For example, if the representation of the ring control is 16-bit unsigned integer, you cannot enter a negative value.|
You also can use the Strings And Values  property to assign specific numeric values programmatically.
