Gets a value indicating whether the current Type represents an enumeration.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
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.
This code produces the following output:
Is Color an enum? True. Is Color a value type? True. Is Enum an enum type? False. Is Enum a value type? False.
