problem concatenating two strings to create an enum value
Posted on 2008-11-18
I have the following enum:
Public Enum enmAvailabilityMonths
October08 = 1
November08 = 2
December08 = 3
January09 = 4
February09 = 5
March09 = 6
April09 = 7
May09 = 8
June09 = 9
July09 = 10
August09 = 11
September09 = 12
In one of my functions which expects this enum i am trying to concatenate two strings to produce say the value October08 like so:
Dim month As String = GetFullMonthValue(e.Day.Date.Month)
Dim year As String = e.Day.Date.Year.ToString.Substring(2, 2)
RenderDay(e, CType(month & year, UKCaravanFinderUtils.enmAvailabilityMonths), cldDisplay, e.Day.Date.Year, e.Day.Date.Month)
I then try converting the value to type UKCaravanFinderUtils.enmAvailabilityMonths.
I am getting the error cannot convert my string to integer based on this value.
Is there a workaround?
