Enum BindingStrength

    • Enum Constant Detail

      • REQUIRED

        public static final BindingStrength REQUIRED
        To be conformant, the concept in this element SHALL be from the specified value set
      • EXTENSIBLE

        public static final BindingStrength EXTENSIBLE
        To be conformant, the concept in this element SHALL be from the specified value set if any of the codes within the value set can apply to the concept being communicated. If the value set does not cover the concept (based on human review), alternate codings (or, data type allowing, text) may be included instead.
      • PREFERRED

        public static final BindingStrength PREFERRED
        Instances are encouraged to draw from the specified codes for interoperability purposes but are not required to do so to be considered conformant.
      • EXAMPLE

        public static final BindingStrength EXAMPLE
        Instances are not expected or even encouraged to draw from the specified value set. The value set merely provides examples of the types of concepts intended to be included.
    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static BindingStrength[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (BindingStrength c : BindingStrength.values())
            System.out.println(c);
        
        Returns:
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static BindingStrength valueOf​(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        Parameters:
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        Returns:
        the enum constant with the specified name
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
      • fromCode

        public static BindingStrength fromCode​(String codeString)
                                        throws org.hl7.fhir.exceptions.FHIRException
        Throws:
