C# Get and Set methods

Hi,
I have a class called Settings and I have this method in there:
public enum Scope
{
scopeone  = 0,
scopetwo = 1,
scopethree = 2                  
}
      
public Settings.Scope SelectScope
{
get{ return _selectScope; }
set{ _selectScope = value; }
}

I then have another method called MessageBox in which I want to display the scope value picked up from the dropdown.  How do I do this?

public void MessageB()
{
      //For testing purposes:
      _selectScope = Scope.scopeone;
      MessageBox.Show(_selectScope.ToString());
}

.ToString()  will give a string name of the enum.  If you want the original number, you will have to create your own ToString() function and output the numeric value.

MessageBox.Show(Enum.GetName(typeof(Scope), _selectScope);

Sorry, not override the ToString() Function (since that's in the enumerator)
What you can do is to show the numeric value of your enumator is to say

MessageBox.Show( (  ((int)_selectScore).ToString() );
Where you cast your enum into an integer first.

Hope this helps :)
