Hi Mary -

If you only have 6 possible values, just use the *first* six states in the mbbi/mbbo record, the values for those states (??VL) do not have to be sequential ... e.g.

   field(ZRST, "STARTUP ENABLE")
   field(ZRVL, "1")
   field(ONST, "INITIALIZED TO OTHER")
   field(ONVL, "5")
   field(TWST, "ALIGNMENT GCA")
   field(TWVL, "6")
   field(THST, "ALIGNED INERTIAL")
   field(THVL, "7")
   field(FRST, "CBIT")
   field(FRVL, "8")
   field(FVST, "TEST")
   field(FVVL, "15")

Subject: Medm Menu Object with non-sequential choices

I am a new user to MEDM, and I am wondering if it possible to tie a non-sequential list of enumeration values to a menu object?  I have attempted to do this, however, for the enumeration values that are not in the record, the menu displays a blank line for this values and we don’t want the blank lines.
