Enum Constant Detail

RANDOM

public static final VariableType RANDOM
randomly chooses the next value


SEQUENTIAL

public static final VariableType SEQUENTIAL
chooses the next value in the list (wraps to the first value from the end)


STATIC

public static final VariableType STATIC
value is unchanging

Method Detail

values

public static VariableType[] values()
Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
for (VariableType c : VariableType.values())
    System.out.println(c);

Returns:
an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared

valueOf

public static VariableType valueOf(java.lang.String name)
Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)

Parameters:
name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
Returns:
the enum constant with the specified name
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
java.lang.NullPointerException - if the argument is null

toString

public java.lang.String toString()
returns this VariableType as a string

Overrides:
toString in class java.lang.Enum<VariableType>
