Hi,

I have 2 items compared. Unfortunately,they don’t allow comparing these items because one is a string value the other is an Enum.

How can I convert a string value to Enum so that I could compare this two?

Can I have a simple code on converting string to Enum?

Microsoft Dynamics AX Debugger

This error shows when you compare enum types and they don't match. It can also happen for the Boxing in C#.

If you want to avoid boxing , you should compare generics. You can do it with EqualityComparer<T>.Default. This does IEquatable<T> (without boxing) and also object.Equals, and locates all the Nullable<T> "lifted" nuances. Hence there shouldn't be any error regarding enumeration.

Simplest solution is to cast your Enum to string. Then you can compare string values. Try the following code

publicenum EItems

{

    item1=11,

    item2=2,

    item3=3

 

      

}

 

       stringa = "1";

        int b = (int)EItems.item1;

        if (b.ToString() == a)

        {

 

        }
