XML Enums

i have a class which contains xml enums, I am not able to use integers or any special characters

Example :
I cannot use like <XmlEnum(Name:="CHG")> 1 ...i will get a error.... as end of enum expected ....I have to use ( _ ) Underscore infront of 1 inorder to use 1 but when i bind it to a dropdownlist the display text will be _1. How to avoid the _1 inside dropdownlist. I have avoided through the code but how to achieve this using only XMLEnum.

This class was created  using a xmlschema from xsdobjectgen.exe .

I have to use like the below code i have written  


Namespace Test.Web.Enums

    Public Module Declarations
        Public Const SchemaVersion As String = ""
    End Module
<Serializable()> _
    Public Enum PaymentType
        <XmlEnum(Name:="CHG")> _1  ---------------> (I want to avoid _1)
        <XmlEnum(Name:="COD")> COD
        <XmlEnum(Name:="PPD")> PPD
    End Enum

Like this:

<Serializable()> _
Public Enum PaymentType
  <XmlEnum(Name:="CHG")> CHG = 1
  <XmlEnum(Name:="COD")> COD
  <XmlEnum(Name:="PPD")> PPD
End Enum

The expression you enter after <XmlEnum()> is the name of the enumeration member, so of course you can't use 1 as that's an illegal variable name.  _1 will work but that's not what you want.  So the solution, I would think, is to use the name of the XmlEnum as the member name, and set its value to 1.  Is there any reason this wouldn't work for you?
