What are the enumerations? I saw that they are named in the documentation

:bust_in_silhouette: Reply From: klaas

enumerations or short enum are a collection of numbered literal constants.

Just like

const MY_CONST = 234

but enums are defiened differently


then TILE_BRICK would be 0 TILE_WATER = 1 and so on

If you would want more structured code you can do


Then tiles.TILE_BRICK would be 0 etc.

and since they are constant they are static too
MyCustomClass.tiles.TILE_BRICK is also accessible

I could do it with the body entered signal of an area to detect when there is something over this?

How do we know enums are static? I can make another question if need be.

Well … they are. Like any other constant in gd script
