Inherited Properties


val name: String

Returns the name of this enum constant, exactly as declared in its enum declaration.


val ordinal: Int

Returns the ordinal of this enumeration constant (its position in its enum declaration, where the initial constant is assigned an ordinal of zero).

Inherited Functions


fun clone(): Any

Throws an exception since enum constants cannot be cloned. This method prevents enum classes from inheriting from Cloneable.


fun compareTo(other: E): Int

Compares this object with the specified object for order. Returns zero if this object is equal to the specified other object, a negative number if it's less than other, or a positive number if it's greater than other.


fun equals(other: Any?): Boolean

Indicates whether some other object is "equal to" this one. Implementations must fulfil the following requirements:


fun hashCode(): Int

Returns a hash code value for the object. The general contract of hashCode is:


open fun toString(): String

Returns a string representation of the object.
