Change usage of DetId_t enum defined in SimpleTypesAndConstants to accept arbitrary strings.
Currently some classes understand the mapping between this enum and detector name strings. Will change this to use only strings throughout
#4 Updated by Brian Rebel over 5 years ago
Issue partially resolved with commit
to the LArCore repository. Enumerations are still allowed for backwards compatibility with old files. A decision needs to be made as to when the enumerations can be removed completely.
#6 Updated by Brian Rebel almost 5 years ago
- Status changed from Assigned to Resolved
The use of DetId_t types has been removed from LArSoft. There should be no impact to code as the default was to use the string values instead for the last year. The LArSoft list was emailed on November 12, 2015 to ask if there would be any objections to removing this type from files, no objections were communicated by COB November 13, 2015 as specified in the email.
