How do iI get a list of allowed values for an Optional parameteroption?

When using mathematicaMathematica how can iI get a list of the allowed values of an optional parameter option? As an example iI can use the OptionsOptions command as follows -

Options[Manipulate]

which gives me a list of available options

(* {Alignment->Automatic,AppearanceElements->Automatic,AutoAction->\
False,AutorunSequencing->Automatic,BaselinePosition->Automatic,\
BaseStyle->{},Bookmarks->{},ContentSize->Automatic,ContinuousAction->\
Automatic,ControlAlignment->Automatic,ControllerLinking->Automatic,\
ControllerMethod->Automatic,ControllerPath->Automatic,\
ControlPlacement->Automatic,ControlType->Automatic,DefaultBaseStyle->\
"Manipulate",DefaultLabelStyle->"ManipulateLabel",Deinitialization:>\
None,Deployed->False,Evaluator->Automatic,Frame->False,FrameLabel->\
None,FrameMargins->Automatic,ImageMargins->0,Initialization:>None,\
InterpolationOrder->Automatic,LabelStyle->{},LocalizeVariables->True,\
Method->{},Paneled->True,PreserveImageOptions->True,RotateLabel->\
False,SaveDefinitions->False,ShrinkingDelay->0,\
SynchronousInitialization->True,SynchronousUpdating->Automatic,\
TouchscreenAutoZoom->False,TouchscreenControlPlacement->Automatic,\
TrackedSymbols->Full,UnsavedVariables:>None,UntrackedVariables:>None} \
*)

iI can use OptionsOptions for a specific parameter, i.e.,

Options[Manipulate,ControlType]
(* {ControlType->Automatic} *)

But this doesn't tell me what the possible allowed values are for this parameter ?option. Checkbox, Setter etc etc. Is there a command iI can use to find the allowed values of an optional parameter option?

Thanks David.
