Is it possible to make a custom list of preferred values for a sub/function?

For example, with the MsgBox:
vbnetmsgbox.jpg

Also, how do I go about making a description for the value to be entered, as shown in the image in the yellow box?

Thanks, Lachlan.

The custom list of predefined values is called Enum (enumeration). The parameter can be made Optional, in which case you have to define a default value. The decriptions are called "Xml documentation" and works like special code comments that integrates with the Intellisense help system, see help topic How to: Create XML Documentation in Visual Basic
Code:
Private Enum Customlist
    OptionA
    OptionB
End Enum

''' <summary>
''' This method does nothing.
''' </summary>
''' <param name="param">An optional option from Customlist options</param>
''' <remarks></remarks>
Private Sub Method(Optional ByVal param As Customlist = Customlist.OptionA)

End Sub
