What's the best way to convert a string to an enumeration value in C#?
I have an HTML select tag containing the values of an enumeration. When the page is posted, I want to pick up the value (which will be in the form of a string) and convert it to the corresponding enumeration value.
In an ideal world, I could do something like this:
StatusEnum MyStatus = StatusEnum.Parse("Active");
but that isn't a valid code.
