Wiring under cabinet lighting to a wall switch

I want to install hardwired under cabinet lights before installing a tile backsplash. All of the lights I am finding have a switch on the light. My question is would it be OK to wire them (3) to a switch on the wall and leave the on/off switches on the lights "on" permanently?

Or, if anyone knows of any under cabinet lights that are set up to be hardwired and don't have the switches, that would be great also.

Thanks,
Greg

Yes, Leaving the switch "on" on the lights is just fine.

That's what I thought but it never hurts to ask.

Thanks,
Greg
