Introduction to C#
Enumerations types

Enumeration types provide for symbolic names of selected integer values. Use of enumeration types improves the readability of your programs.

Enumeration types are similar to each other in C and C#

  public enum Ranking {Bad, OK, Good}

  public enum OnOff: byte{
    On = 1, Off = 0}

Two examples of enumeration types in C#.

  • An extension of C enumeration types:

    • Enumeration types of several different underlying types can be defined (not just int)

    • Enumeration types inherit a number of methods from the type System.Enum

    • The symbolic enumeration constants can be printed (not just the underlying number)

    • Values, for which no enumeration constant exist, can be dealt with

    • Combined enumerations represent a collection of enumerations
