An enum object is a special type of entity object that ensures the value must be one from a list of allowed values.

Enum objects are usually defined in the prototype of another object, but can be extracted using param_obj and output_obj.

Value

Examples

# Create a new enum object
E = enum(
    name = 'example',
    description = 'this is an example',
    type = 'character',
    value = 'hello',
    allowed = c('hello','world')
)

# Get/set the value of the entity object
value(E)
value(E) = 'world'
