Enum, Switch

Hi experts.

I would like to use an enum of roles to check against a int variable.

I have the following:

foreach(int roleId in currentUserRoles)
{
  switch(roleId)
  {
      case ((int)RoleType.Administrator):
             AdminOnly = true;
            break;
   }
}

what I need to happen is for an integer check to happen, but this does not seem to work. My enum is as follows:

public enum RoleType
{
    Operations = 0,
    Finance = 1,
    Administrator = 2
}

basically, whatever numbers are returned in roleId (1,3) then my code should check against the enum to see which role this links to then set a bool value respectively

I don't really see a problem in this code. It seems quite efficient to me. What is the exact problem?

Hi,

I think you need like this

foreach(int roleId in currentUserRoles)
{
      if (roleId==(int)RoleType.Administrator)
      {
            AdminOnly = true;
            break;
      }
                        
}

Thanks
