Enumeration Property

Gets/sets an object implementing System.Collections.IEnumerable which contains a list of value options. Note, this property defaults to a null (Nothing) value.
Public Property Enumeration As IEnumerable
public IEnumerable Enumeration {get; set;}

Enumeration constraints data value to be one of the elements that are part of the enumeration. In other words the value being validated by this ValueConstraint object will not be considered valid if the value is not part of this enumeration.

Note: The Enumeration is IEnumerable interface type. Therefore it can be set to any object that implements this interface, including Array, ArrayList etc...

The following code sets the Enumeration property of a ValueConstraint to an Array containing A, B and C strings. The ValueConstraint is assigned to XamTextEditor. The editor will make sure that the entered value is A, B or C (upper case). If any other value is entered then when the user attempts to leave the editor, the editor will take action based on InvalidValueBehavior setting which in the following code snippet is set to DisplayErrorMessage.

<!--This editor will make sure that the text entered is A, B or C (upper case)-->
<igEditors:XamTextEditor x:Name="textEditor4" InvalidValueBehavior="DisplayErrorMessage" >
<x:Array Type="{x:Type system:Object}">
