Overridable limitations for Enumerations

I'm making an Base Class that will be inherited. In my base class, I
have a public enumeration that defines a list of things I want my class
to be able to do. I use it for Method input parameters, as well as
output Events.

Public Enum enmListOfValues
End Enum

....It works really great, because it allows me to have AutoSyntax
completion in the child classes that inherit from it. Makes for very
readible code.

However, there is a problem. I'm only able to use the Enumerations I
set up in my Base class. ...And what I would like to do on occasion,
is to have one of my Child Classes "Override" this, and feed in it's
own list of enmListofValues for the Classes that inherit from it.

....But it doesn't work. Overriding isn't allowed for Enumerations.

The best I can come up with, is to make a Public Integer Property in my
Base Class, and then Declare an Enum in each Child Class, as needed,
and CType() it. ...What a drag.

Does anyone have a better solution for this? ...I want my
AutoComplete. It's so dang useful. ...But I also want to either be
able to dynamically add to the Enumeration in my base class, or
Override it. ...And Shadows isn't any good. Because I want to have
other classes inherit from the class I redefine the Enumerations in.

Anyone encounter this, or have any ideas? Your help would be greatly
