Need help with wiring a GFCI Combo Switch/Outlet into Current Light Switch

Hi,

I am trying to install a Legrand GFCI combo switch (GFCI Outlet/Light Switch) in my bathroom and I need a little help with wiring it correctly. I have identified which cable is the line and which is the light/load. What is throwing me is the 2 black wires coming out of the new GFCI switch which is labeled "Switch Output". Ignore ground wires as these are all present, but i did not want to draw those as well to complicate the picture.

Below is the configuration I was thinking to maintain GFCI protection on the outlet. I would just like more experienced folks to verify or correct me.

This outlet is the only one in the bathroom as this circuit is only for ceiling lights and the rest are outside the bathroom.

Below is a link to Legrand's wiring diagram for completeness. Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

Here is a better picture of the back of new switch.

We don't either.

Note: lights are not normally GFCI protected so that is what I diagrammed. I show pigtails but since there are two places to connect hot and neutral no pigtails are needed.

Thanks Ray, your diagram looks the same as the my second one. All my gray wires are really black "hot" wires, just used gray as the black would not show on black background of pic. Thanks!
