I wanna know how to make a similar structure in c# as the C++ enum. I want to make a program that passes keystrokes/values resulting from t he keystrokes to another class. Actually I'm moving a visual object.

The class I'm using right now has 6 defined variables, and 6 if-statements and 6 IsMovingLeft get/set functions. Something like:
private bool left = false;
if(left){ x=x-1; };
public bool IsMovingLeft
{  get{ return left;}
  set{ left = value; } } six times

Question: how to make anything like this in c#:

// enum.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.
#include "stdafx.h"

enum Keystr {UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, FRONT, BACK};

class EnumClass
{
public:
                void Select(Keystr key)
      {
            switch(key)
            {
            case UP:
                  moveUp();
                  break;
            case DOWN:
                  moveDown();
                  break;
            case LEFT:
                  moveLeft();
                  break;
            case RIGHT:
                            moveRight);
                  break;
            default:
                  break;
            };
      }
      Keystr key;
};


int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
      EnumClass theClass;

      theClass.key = UP;
      theClass.Select(theClass.key);

      printf("Hello World!\n");
      return 0;
}

Hi

you would do it just the same

enum Keystr {UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, FRONT, BACK};

class EnumClass
{
     public void Select( Keystr key )
     {
          switch( key )
          {
          case Keystr.UP:
               moveUp();
               break;
          case Keystr.DOWN:
               moveDown();
               break;
          case Keystr.LEFT:
               moveLeft();
               break;
          case Keystr.RIGHT:
                          moveRight);
               break;
          default:
               break;
          };
     }
     Keystr key;
};

Hope this helps
