Describes and represents an enumeration type.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: MayLeakOnAbort. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.
The following code example demonstrates the construction of an enumeration within a dynamic assembly, using EnumBuilder. The example defines an enumeration named Elevation, with an underlying type of Int32, and creates two elements: Low, with a value of 0, and High, with a value of 1. After the type has been created, the assembly is saved with the name TempAssembly.dll. You can use the MSIL Disassembler (Ildasm.exe) to examine the contents of this assembly.
Prior to the .NET Framework version 2.0, this code example does not produce a correct enumeration.
