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