Get Enum By Ordinal

I have a Enum named condition.

The ordinal value for Condition.A is 0. The ordinal() method will return the ordinal value of 0.

However, if I have the value of 0, is there a way I can get Condition.A from it without a switch statement?

Yes. Condition.values() returns an array of all values in order by ordinal. So Condition.values()[0] returns the Condition for ordinal 0.
