24V under counter lighting

I have a series of under counter (puck) lights that I just installed in my kitchen. The manufacturer expects you to daisy chain all of the pucks, then just plug one connection into a wall outlet.

I'd like to wire the connection to a combination switch/receptical, replacing a standard receptical. How do I wire the device so that I can turn the lights on and off with the wall switch?

If necessary, pigtail wires in box after you remove existing receptacle so you will only have one white (neutral) and one black (hot). Hook the white to the silver screw (neutral for receptacle) and hook the black to the bronze switch screw that is NOT connected to the receptacle with a tab on the side of the receptacle. When you turn the switch on, the power will go through to the other side of the switch, through the tab, and then to the hot side of the receptacle.
