Enumerations and the switch Decision Statement - 19
Classes can contain many different types of information, not just Properties and Methods. In this lesson we demonstrate the use of Enumerations because in the .NET Framework Class Library, properties can often be set only to a predetermined subset of possible values. To illustrate this point we create our own custom enumeration, then utilize it in a simple application that demonstrates a third Decision statement, the switch. We then demonstrate some Visual Studio IDE magic that automatically implements code blocks for all possible enumeration values.
