EnumBuilder.Name Property

Returns the name of this enum.

Namespace: System.Reflection.Emit
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public override string Name { get; }
/** @property */
public String get_Name ()

public override function get Name () : String

Property Value

Read-only. The name of this enum.

The following code sample demonstrates the use of the Name property to reference the name of the current EnumBuilder.
