#
# The StaticValue class gives you access to globally accessible constants through a human-readable and compact format.
#
# To define a new set of static values just define a class in this file such as:
# StaticValue.register('MyValues')
#
# Once your class is present you can add values to it via the add_item method:
# MyValues.add_item :Default, 0
# MyValues.add_item :Custom, 1
# MyValues.add_item :UserDefined, 2
#
# Then you access those values like this:
# MyValues::Default, MyValues::Custom
#
# The class gives you a few helpful methods:
# MyValues.all => [0,1,2]
# MyValues.each{|key,value| ... }
# MyValues.to_a => [[:Default, 0], [:Custom, 1], [:UserDefined, 2]]
# MyValues.for_select => [["Default", 0], ["Custom", 1], ["User defined", 2]]
# MyValues.pretty_print(2) => "User defined"
# MyValues.pretty_print(:Default) => 'Default'
# MyValues[:Default] => 0
# MyValues[2] => :UserDefined
#
# Form use case:
# form_for @user do |f|
# f.select :gender, Gender.for_select
# end
#
