Property Values

This may be a total newbie question, but I'm hoping someone has a quick answer for me.

Let's say I have the following property in a user control:

Public WriteOnly Property EyeColor() as String
    Set(ByVal value As String)
            lblEyeColor.Text = value
    End Set
End Property

If I made the type be Boolean instead of a String, when I go to set the properties for this control I would be prompted for a "True" or "False".  Is there a way, to get the intellisense to offer me choices that I want to limit the property to?

For example, with this property, I might want to limit my choices to "blue", "brown", "green", and "other".

How can I do this?
