    I've just been trying my hand at installing strip lighting in my wife's glass display cabinet. The results are quite pleasing but I need to know a bit more about the product.......The self adhesive strip requires a 4 pin connector. One pin is marked 12v and the others red, green and black.
    What is fed to those three coloured pins?

    These are separate connections for the red, green and (I suppose) blue (not black) LEDs within the strip. You connect these pins to ground (0 V) of teh 12 V supply to turn the respective color on. Usually an RGB controller (see e.g. here) is connected to these pins to allow control of different light setups and/or effects.
    Without controller you'll get constant light of a color defined by which pins you connect to ground. For "white" connect all three to ground.
