Declaring enum Variable

The general syntax for declaring an enumeration is:
    enumeration list 
  • The enum_name specifies the enumeration type name.
  • The enumeration list is a comma-separated list of identifiers.
Each of the symbols in the enumeration list stands for an integer value, one greater than the symbol that precedes it. By default, the value of the first enumeration symbol is 0. For example:
enum Days { Sun, Mon, tue, Wed, thu, Fri, Sat };


The following example demonstrates use of enum variable:
using System;
namespace EnumApplication
   class EnumProgram
      enum Days { Sun, Mon, tue, Wed, thu, Fri, Sat };

      static void Main(string[] args)
         int WeekdayStart = (int)Days.Mon;
         int WeekdayEnd = (int)Days.Fri;
         Console.WriteLine("Monday: {0}", WeekdayStart);
         Console.WriteLine("Friday: {0}", WeekdayEnd);
When the above code is compiled and executed, it produces the following result:
Monday: 1
Friday: 5
