Hello experts,

An easy question I should know.  What or how does this need to be casted with Option Strict on?

Console.WriteLine(myEnum.Current.Row.Item("BasicInfoID"))

I thought Enums where int16 varible types but I am having a hard time casting it.

Thanks,
-Tim

The commented lines ('***) are the solution I had to use because I can not cast.

Dim myEnum As IEnumerator = ds.Tables("utblBasicInfo").DefaultView.GetEnumerator()
'***Dim dv As DataRowView
'***Dim dr As DataRow
While myEnum.MoveNext
     Console.WriteLine(myEnum.Current.Row.Item("BasicInfoID"))
     'Console.WriteLine(CType(myEnum.Current.Row.item("BasicInfoID"), Int16))
     '***dr = CType(myEnum.Current, DataRowView).Row
     '***dr.Item("Status") = "Expired"
     '***Console.WriteLine(dr.Item("BasicInfoID"))
     '***Console.WriteLine(dr.Item("Status"))
End While

Option strict on, disallows late binding

and the .current property returns an object so you have to cast like this

Console.WriteLine(CType(myEnum.Current, datarowview).Row.item("BasicInfoID"))

And remember

Enumerators only allow reading the data in the collection. Enumerators cannot be used to modify the underlying collection
