wwDotNetBridge::GetEnumString

Retrieves the string enum field name from a .NET Enum value.

Enums are stored as numeric values internally. This function

o.GetEnumString(lcEnumType, lvEnumValue)

Parameters

lcEnumType
The type of the Enumeration as a string: System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxIcon

lvEnumValue
The actual enumerated value (typically numeric). ie. Button3

Remarks

Note that some enumerations end up with the same value assigned to a single enumerated item. For example the System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxIcon enum has 48 assigned both to Warning and Exclamation. Only one of these values is returned (Warning in this case).

Example

lnEnum = loBridge.GetEnumValue("System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxIcon.Warning")
? lnEnum  && 48

*** Prints 'Warning'
? loBridge.GetEnumString("System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxIcon",lnEnum)
