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

abstract IsEnum : bool with get
override IsEnum : bool with get

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the current Type represents an enumeration; otherwise, false.

Implements

_Type.IsEnum

This property returns true for an enumeration, but not for the Enum type itself.

If the current Type represents a constructed generic type, this property applies to the generic type definition from which the type was constructed. For example, if the current Type represents MyGenericType<int> (MyGenericType(Of Integer) in Visual Basic), the value of this property is determined by MyGenericType<T>.

If the current Type represents a type parameter in the definition of a generic type or generic method, this property always returns false.

This property is read-only.

The following example demonstrates how to use the IsEnum property.
