I have an app that I'm working  on. Structure is as below

MyApp.sln
--ProjA
   --Class1
   --Class2
   --Enum1  (ReportType)
--ProjB
  --Class3 (Has method "MyMethod")
  --Class4

So, ProjA has references to ProjB.

Lets say in Class2 I'm calling Class3. Want to pass the Enum1 value in  Class3.

So I'm calling MyMethod(ReportType.Static);

In Class3 when I type MyMethod(ReportType reportType)
I receive an error  because  it can't  find "ReportType". If I try to add the reference by right  clicking on  reference and adding by selecting project and selecting "ProjA" I  receive an error indicating a circular reference and I understand why.  

Any idea how to pass the enum to  Class3?

Move the definition of the enum to ProjB. The enum is obviously a dependency, so it should be in the independent class.

Thanks Kaufmed.  That works.  I was trying to  keep all the models in one spot. Oh well.
