How to add a method to Enumeration in Scala?

In Java you could:

public enum Enum {
    ONE {
        public String method() {
            return "1";
    TWO {
        public String method() {
            return "2";
    THREE {
        public String method() {
            return "3";

    public abstract String method();

How do you do this in Scala?


Here is an example of adding attributes to scala enums by extending the Enumeration.Val class.

object Planet extends Enumeration { 
   protected case class Val(val mass: Double, val radius: Double) extends super.Val { 
     def surfaceGravity: Double = Planet.G * mass / (radius * radius) 
     def surfaceWeight(otherMass: Double): Double = otherMass * surfaceGravity 
   implicit def valueToPlanetVal(x: Value) = x.asInstanceOf[Val] 

   val G: Double = 6.67300E-11 
   val Mercury = Val(3.303e+23, 2.4397e6) 
   val Venus   = Val(4.869e+24, 6.0518e6) 
   val Earth   = Val(5.976e+24, 6.37814e6) 
   val Mars    = Val(6.421e+23, 3.3972e6) 
   val Jupiter = Val(1.9e+27, 7.1492e7) 
   val Saturn  = Val(5.688e+26, 6.0268e7) 
   val Uranus  = Val(8.686e+25, 2.5559e7) 
   val Neptune = Val(1.024e+26, 2.4746e7) 

scala> Planet.values.filter(_.radius > 7.0e6) 
res16: Planet.ValueSet = Planet.ValueSet(Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune)
