I've got a datalist  that looks like this:

                    <asp:DataList ID="DataList1" runat="server" CellPadding="4" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"
                        <FooterStyle BackColor="#1C5E55" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                        <SelectedItemStyle BackColor="#C5BBAF" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333" />
                            <b><asp:Label ID="DisplayNameLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("DisplayName") %>'></asp:Label></b><br />
                            <asp:Label ID="OfficeLocationLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("OfficeLocation") %>'></asp:Label><br />
                            <asp:Label ID="PhoneLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# "(" & CType(Eval("Phone"),String).SubString(0,3) & ")" & " " & CType(Eval("Phone"),String).SubString(3,3) & "-" & CType(Eval("Phone"),String).SubString(6,4)   %>'></asp:Label><br />
                            <a href="mailto:<%# Eval("Email") %>"><%# Eval("Email") %></a><br />
                            <asp:Label ID="AttorneyTypeLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("AttorneyType") %>'></asp:Label><br />
                            <br />
                        <AlternatingItemStyle BackColor="White" />
                        <ItemStyle BackColor="#E3EAEB" />
                        <HeaderStyle BackColor="#1C5E55" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />

There are two things that I am going to need an enum for, AttorneyType and OfficeLocation. But I don't know how to do this all that well. I have done a couple of enums in code-behind for a 3rd party API, but I didn't actually have to process them, I just passed the enum ID for their API, so it was easy.

My question is how do i build 2 enums for these items and then use them in the aspx page?
