This input section in DesignBuilder maps to the WindowProperty:ShadingControl object in EnergyPlus.

The 4-Solar option in DesignBuilder represents OnIfHighSolarOnWindow: Shading is on if beam plus diffuse solar radiation incident on the window exceeds SetPoint (W/m2) and schedule, if specified, allows shading.
