    I believe that it would look something similar to this:

    Code:
     __________________________________________
    |              SampleClass                 |
    |__________________________________________|
    |                                          |
    | +sampleEnum : SampleEnum = Yes {Yes, No} |
    |__________________________________________|
    |__________________________________________|
    The property-list being {Yes, No}.

    So that would be equivalent to:
    Code:
    enum SampleEnum
    {
       yes,
       no
    };
    would it? And defined as a member of a class? At the moment I have this (see below) but I'm not sure how it fits together in UML (my book uses Java )
    Code:
    enum SEX
    {
       MALE,
       FEMALE
    };
    
    class Student
    {
    public:
       //stuff
    private:
       //some data members +
       SEX sex;
    };
    thx for the help, much appreciated

    Just make sure that you can tell that the data type is enum but listing all the enumerations is a good ideas if they will fit. You could also attach a note icon.

    The format is as follows:

    <name> : <type> = <default> {<parameter list, ...>}

    so...
    Code:
    enum SEX
    {
       MALE,
       FEMALE
    };
    
    class Student
    {
    public:
       //stuff
    private:
       //some data members +
       SEX sex;
    };
    would look similar to this:
    Code:
     __________________________________
    |             Student              |
    |__________________________________|
    |                                  |
    | +sex : SEX = MALE {MALE, FEMALE} |
    |__________________________________|
