I'm relatively new to PHP programming and I've come across a situation where I need to enforce a specific set of valid values for a property or field in my PHP classes. After doing some research, I stumbled upon the concept of enumerations, but I'm not quite sure if they can be used for this purpose in PHP.
I have a property in my class that should only accept a definite set of values. I want to restrict any other values from being set for that property. I thought that using an enumeration would be a good choice, as it allows me to define a finite set of named values.
If anyone has experience with this, can you please confirm whether using an enumeration is a viable approach in PHP for enforcing specific valid values for properties or fields? If not, what would be the recommended alternative in PHP?
I appreciate any advice or guidance you can provide. Thanks in advance!
