Questa posted a very usefull piece of code…
It’s possible to convert a string representation of an enum back to an enum!

  private enum MyEnumeration
  {
      FooBar,
      Foo,
      Bar
  }

  …

  MyEnum foo = MyEnum.Foo;
  string foobar = foo.ToString();
  MyEnum bar = (MyEnum)Enum.Parse(typeof(MyEnum), foobar);

At the end of this code, the variable ‘bar’ has the MyEnum value ‘Foo’, just the way it’s supposed to be…
