Custom AF Value Type

Is it possible, via the SDK, to code a custom value type? For example I wish to have a value type similar to the Enumeration set type where a user is presented with a combobox control of available values, however instead of using enumeration items entered via the Library module I wish to use some other list (such as a list of Element Category GUID vs Element Category Name).


To clarify let say I enter the following Element Categories into AD 'Pump', 'Motor', 'Robot'. Now I want to define an AF attribute that lets the user select one of these categories, behind the scenes the category GUID is stored in the attribute, but the category name is displayed.
