Custom Control

(OP)
When I'm defining custom properties on a custom control - how do I define a custom property w/ only limited, defined options .  For example, I have a custom control that displays an I/O channel state... one of the properties is "Channel Direction", which I have set as a boolean right now.  When false it's an output channel - when true it's an input channel.  I'd like to give the property a dropdown, like what other standard controls have, with the two (Input, Output) values as the only  options.

I'm using VB2005 and I've only been programming a few months -  so any advice will be greatly appreciated!

RE: Custom Control

If it was VB6, I'd use a select between an indexed Option controls.  Set defaults as Option1(0).Value = True and Option1(1).Value = False.  When you select one, the other deselects, if both Options are contained in the same Frame.
