Annotation Type Messages.Select

Enclosing interface:

@Retention(RUNTIME) @Target(PARAMETER) public static @interface Messages.Select
Provides multiple forms based on a dynamic parameter. This annotation is applied to a single parameter of a Messages subinterface and indicates that parameter is to be used to choose the proper form of the message. The parameter chosen must be of type Enum, String, boolean, or a primitive integral type. This is frequently used to get proper gender for translations to languages where surrounding words depend on the gender of a person or noun. This also marks the parameter as Messages.Optional.
