Question: Why am I getting "[Enum].GetValues" underlined blue (see line 5) with 'GetValues' not member of 'Enum' message? What can I do to correct this.

BTW, I know this code works (see the post from it_sage at: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/.NET/Visual_Basic.NET/Q_28594419.html)

Private Sub Enum_Select_TypoOf()
.
.

        Dim value As List(Of Importance) = [Enum].GetValues(GetType(Importance)).Cast(Of Importance)().ToList()
 .
.   
 End Sub

No, I don't have. I searched Enum As entire solution just to make sure.

I started a new project with this code and the error went away.
