# How to find count of number if items in an enumeration?

Is is possible to find a count of the number of items in an enumeration?
Something like:
Public Enum MyEnum
First = 1
Second = 2
Third = 3
End Enum

EnumCount(MyEnu m) = 3
Is it also possible to iterate through an enumeration? Something akin to
this (which doesn't work):

Dim int as Integer
For Each int in MyEnum
...
Next int

Check out the GetNames method of the Enum class. Once you get the
array of names, you can use it's Length property to tell you how many
there are....

Dim n As Integer = [Enum].GetValues(GetT ype(MyEnum)).Le nght

Take a look at '[Enum].GetValues' and '[Enum].GetNames'.
