Solved!

It seems this can be done in Labwindows/CVI, can it be done in Labview? if possible, How? Thanks.

Hi David,

insert a "-" and you'll get a separator.

Another poster who is apparently unaware of the LabVIEW help:

 

Adding Text Items in Ring Controls

Complete the following steps to add items to the list of items in a ring control.

  1. Right-click the ring control and select Edit Items from the shortcut menu to display the Edit Items page of the Ring Properties dialog box.
  2. Double-click in an empty cell in the Items column and enter the string you want to display in the list of items for the ring control. You also can place the cursor in a cell that already contains a string, click the Insert button to create an empty row above the cell, and enter a string in the new cell.

    Enter a hyphen (-) in an empty cell to create a separator in the list of items for the control.

It seems that a "-" works once in an enumerated value too. Would it be usefule to other people to be able to have more than one in this type of control? I could see the use of it for orginization of states for a state machine, events or type defs.

I'ld be careful.  It is imposible to select enum - (seperator) but it HAS a value and IMHO it obfuscates code.  very limited potential to order a state machines states.

Indeed, it would still be usefull to be able to add multiple separators in enum 😁
