How to: Group Related Constant Values Together (Visual Basic)

An enumeration is the best way to group related constants together. You create an enumeration with the Enum statement in the declarations section of a class or a module. For more information, see How to: Declare Enumerations (Visual Basic).

To group related constant values

  1. Write a declaration that includes a code access level, the Enum keyword, and a valid name. This example creates the Private enumeration, temperatureValues.

    Private Enum temperatureValues
    
  2. Define the constants in the enumeration. This example creates the Public enumeration temperatureValues and assigns its values.

    Public Enum temperatureValues
      Scorching
      Hot
      Lukewarm
      Cool
      Cold
    End Enum
