trueList Element

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

The trueList element is used to set the multiple registry values when a boolean element is set to the true state.


     <trueList defaultKey="<placeholder for registry subkey>">
       <item> … </item>


Attributes Required Description

defaultKey Attribute


Represents a default registry subkey for all items.

Child elements

Element Required Description

item Element


Represents a registry subkey with an associated value.


For simplicity of documentation, nested elements located one level down, known as child elements, will only be described for a given element.


The trueList element is an optional element. If you use the trueList element when defining a boolean element, you must define at least one item element. If not, the Group Policy Object Editor will display an error.

You can define a maximum of one trueList element for a boolean element.

There is no limit to the number of items that can be defined for a single trueList element.


The XML fragment is an example of three registry values set to either a string or decimal value for a boolean element true state.

        <item key="Software\Policies\Examples" valueName="ExampletrueList1">
        <item key="Software\Policies\Examples" valueName="ExampletrueList2">
            <decimal value="11" />
        <item key="Software\Policies\Examples" valueName="ExampletrueList3">
