Initializer

init(rawValue:)

Creates a new instance with the specified raw value.

Required.

Declaration

init?(rawValue: Self.RawValue)

Parameters

rawValue

Discussion

If there is no value of the type that corresponds with the specified raw value, this initializer returns nil. For example:

enum PaperSize: String {
    case A4, A5, Letter, Legal
}

print(PaperSize(rawValue: "Legal"))
// Prints "Optional("PaperSize.Legal")"

print(PaperSize(rawValue: "Tabloid"))
// Prints "nil"
