# Getting the value of an enum

M

#### Mark Fox

Hello,

I have a simple question. If there is an enum:

public enum Hello
{
First = 1,
Second = 2,
Third = 3
}

How do I get the integer value for the selected enum.

Hello thisHello = Hello.Second;
int SelectedValue = [??thisHello.Value??];

Thanks for your help!

Hello thisHello = Hello.Second;
int SelectedValue = [??thisHello.Value??];

int SelectedValue = (int) thisHello;
