Title says it all.  Just can't figure out how this is done. CUSTOM SHEET METAL FEATURES | sheetMetalStart.fs Copy 1 (onshape.com)

Thanks so much if you can provide an example or point to one.

    This is not possible because enum lists are static. The only way to do this would be to create a lookupTable.

    The easiest alternative is probably to break out your UI and values into a separate, easily modifiable Feature Studio. I did that for my Variable Library FS, which you can find here. Some creatively nested maps, comments, and the relevant enum makes it fairly easy for users to copy and add their own functions as they desire - they just have to update the relevant import in the top of the Variable Library feature studio first.

    Thanks.  I will have to do some experimenting with reusing existing code and just creating a new interface.  For the time being, I have just created an enum that matches the values in the csv.  It works OK for me but my secondary goal is to have a feature that other people can use without having to dig into the code to use.
