                                          ' enable or disable the property.  This can also be used on a PL_ButtonCombo where

                                          ' first item in list will disable the item and any other enable item.

CONST PL_Opt_ComboList     = 4            ' Configure a ComboBox to be automatically populated with File, Marker or Analogs.
