ToObject Method (Type, UInt64)

Enum.ToObject Method (Type, UInt64)

Converts the specified 64-bit unsigned integer value to an enumeration member.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

static member ToObject : 
        enumType:Type * 
        value:uint64 -> Object


Type: System.Type

The enumeration type to return.

Type: System.UInt64

The value to convert to an enumeration member.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
An instance of the enumeration set to value.


enumType is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


enumType is not an Enum.

The ToObject(Type, UInt64) method converts value to an enumeration member whose underlying value is value. Note that the conversion succeeds even if value is outside the bounds of enumType members. To ensure that value is a valid underlying value of the enumType enumeration, pass it to the IsDefined method.

This conversion method returns a value of type Object. You can then cast it or convert it to an object of type enumType.
