I'm relatively new to PHP and I've been working on a project that involves using enumerations. I've been able to successfully implement an enumeration, but I'm unsure about how to handle error handling or exception throwing with it.
Here's the scenario: I have an enumeration called "Status" with values like "Active", "Inactive", and "Pending". In some cases, I want to throw an exception if an invalid value is passed to a function that expects a "Status" parameter. For example, if someone tries to pass "Deleted" instead of "Active", I want to throw an exception.
I have a basic understanding of error handling in PHP using try-catch blocks, but I'm not sure how to apply it to an enumeration. Is there a specific approach or best practice for handling errors or throwing exceptions with enumerations in PHP?
Any guidance or code snippets would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
