The <enumeration> element defines common values that apply to all objects of a certain type.

If all objects of a certain type require a certain attribute, and if the range of values for that attribute is limited, you can define the different values as enumeration entries. For example, if a type of object requires a color attribute, and if the only available colors are red, blue, and green, you can define three enumeration entries to define these three color values. You define entries as child elements of the enumeration element.

The <enumeration> element is optional. A plug-in can have an unlimited number of <enumeration> elements. The <enumeration> element has the following attribute.
