Macro Definition Documentation

#define TF_ADD_ENUM_NAME (   VAL,

Macro used to associate a name with an enumerated value.

TF_ADD_ENUM_NAME() registers a name for an enumerated value so that the association can be accessed in calls to TfEnum::GetValueFromName(), TfEnum::GetValueFromFullName(), TfEnum::GetName(), and TfEnum::GetFullName(). It's first argument, VAL, is the symbolic name of the enumerated value or a TfEnum instance constructed from it. The name defined for the value is created by putting double quotes around the VAL argument.

An optional second argument, DISPLAY, is a name to be used for display purposes (i.e. in a user interface). The display name can contain characters like spaces and punctuation, and does not need to be a unique string. If this argument is not specified, the display name will be derived from VAL.

Only the names for which TF_ADD_ENUM_NAME() is called will be accessible with the name/value methods; you can hide values from this mechanism by not adding them.

Please note that the best way to call TF_ADD_ENUM_NAME() is using the TfRegistryManager macro TF_REGISTRY_FUNCTION().
