Enumeration

@SerialVersionUID(8476000850333817230L) abstract
class Enumeration(initial: Int) extends Serializable

Defines a finite set of values specific to the enumeration. Typically these values enumerate all possible forms something can take and provide a lightweight alternative to case classes.

Each call to a Value method adds a new unique value to the enumeration. To be accessible, these values are usually defined as val members of the enumeration.

All values in an enumeration share a common, unique type defined as the Value type member of the enumeration (Value selected on the stable identifier path of the enumeration instance).

Values SHOULD NOT be added to an enumeration after its construction; doing so makes the enumeration thread-unsafe. If values are added to an enumeration from multiple threads (in a non-synchronized fashion) after construction, the behavior of the enumeration is undefined.

Value Params
initial

The initial value from which to count the integers that identifies values at run-time.

Example

// Define a new enumeration with a type alias and work with the full set of enumerated values
object WeekDay extends Enumeration {
 type WeekDay = Value
 val Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun = Value
}
import WeekDay._
def isWorkingDay(d: WeekDay) = ! (d == Sat || d == Sun)
WeekDay.values filter isWorkingDay foreach println
// output:
// Mon
// Tue
// Wed
// Thu
// Fri

// Example of adding attributes to an enumeration by extending the Enumeration.Val class
object Planet extends Enumeration {
 protected case class PlanetVal(mass: Double, radius: Double) extends super.Val {
   def surfaceGravity: Double = Planet.G * mass / (radius * radius)
   def surfaceWeight(otherMass: Double): Double = otherMass * surfaceGravity
 }
 import scala.language.implicitConversions
 implicit def valueToPlanetVal(x: Value): PlanetVal = x.asInstanceOf[PlanetVal]
 val G: Double = 6.67300E-11
 val Mercury = PlanetVal(3.303e+23, 2.4397e6)
 val Venus   = PlanetVal(4.869e+24, 6.0518e6)
 val Earth   = PlanetVal(5.976e+24, 6.37814e6)
 val Mars    = PlanetVal(6.421e+23, 3.3972e6)
 val Jupiter = PlanetVal(1.9e+27, 7.1492e7)
 val Saturn  = PlanetVal(5.688e+26, 6.0268e7)
 val Uranus  = PlanetVal(8.686e+25, 2.5559e7)
 val Neptune = PlanetVal(1.024e+26, 2.4746e7)
}
println(Planet.values.filter(_.radius > 7.0e6))
// output:
// Planet.ValueSet(Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune)
