I have a VeriStand project and I am using the UI Manager for my user interface. 
I want to display a string on the GUI, either as a String, Ring or Enum. I can not find an option to do this.

7. If you want to add your own numeric values that map to strings, rather than the default equal to order, untick Value equal to order
8.. You can now click the + button to add strings  and numeric values
