In many cases the most accurate way to model a solution is with a property that can hold one value chosen from a defined list. Currently developers use either a string - which has to be checked for proper validation, or an integer - which does not convey any context.
Users have been asking for this feature for years:
I agree! This feature would be very helpfull.
After some research on this issue of feature wish I would suggest not to implement a real enum.
Woul be the same like in Excel.
We are looking to use enumerations in Thingworx too! I've seen approaches that lookup enum values by a string with queries from a data table or database but its ugly and unnecessary code.
Will consider for future release. Not targeted for any upcoming releases.
