Property Value

The value associated with the enumeration member.

By default, the value of an enumeration is the name of the enumeration. When a value is specified, that value will appear in the XML document or stream.

The following code:

[DataContract]
public enum Shapes
{
    [EnumMember]
    Circle,
    [EnumMember]
    Square
}

results in the following XML when serialized with the DataContractSerializer:

<Shapes>Circle</Shapes>

or

<Shapes>Square</Shapes>

The following code, with the Value property set:

 <DataContract> _
Public Enum Shapes
    <EnumMember(Value:="1")> Circle
    <EnumMember(Value:="2")> Square   
End Enum 

results in the following XML:

<Shapes>1</Shapes>

or

<Shapes>2</Shapes>
