Using Enumeration parameters in Helm Clockwork

Enumeration parameters let you give sensible operator-friendly names to numbers. Let’s go back to our router example to see this in action.

Select Helm Clockwork and click on (…) to edit the Event Types


select Enumeration as the parameter type

Click (…) to edit the values


Now add name – value pairs


name-value pairs are entered like this:


this applies everywhere in Helm where you are setting up enumerations.

Click Ok to exit the string editor and OK again to save the Event Type

Now run the panel and add the event to see this in action


Now instead of numbers the operator sees meaningful names. This is great way to make your panels easier to use and avoid potentially dangerous mistakes.
