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

static member ToObject : 
        enumType:Type *
        value:int16 -> Object


Type: System.Type

The enumeration type to return.

Type: System.Int16

The value to convert to an enumeration member.

Return Value

Type: System.Object

An instance of the enumeration set to value.

Exception Condition

enumType is null.


enumType is not an Enum.

The ToObject(Type, Int16) 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.
