Iterating an Enum using a function

Last Modified: 2015-07-28
I have this code to extract the members from an Enum.

Dim items As Array
        items = System.Enum.GetValues(GetType(someEnum))
        Dim item As String
        For Each item In items
            MessageBox.Show(item)
        Next

Open in new window


How can I turn this into a function that takes the Enum Name as a string ?
