I want to create a delphi object with a property which can be
one of the follow values:

(PENDING,DOWN,UP,SLEEPING....)

So that in my code i can do things like that:

Actor.Status := PENDING;
Node.Status := UP;

Should I define my const value and use them in a property?

Someone can show me how to do it, plz?

type
  TMyStatus = (PENDING, DOWN, UP, SLEEP);

  TActor = class()
  private
    FStatus: TMyStatus;

  public
    property Status: TMyStatus read FStatus write SetStatus;
  endl

Something like that.

If TActore is not your class then you can define enumeration like:

type
  TMysStatus = (PENDING = 100, DOWN = 200, UP = 5, SLEEP = 1);

where 100, 200, 5 and 1 are the actual values defined for the class.
