Convert String to Enum using Delphi

Leave a comment

To convert a string in a Enum type, you can use the GetEnumValue function declarated in the TypInfo unit.

See this example

uses
  TypInfo;

type
  Language = (Delphi,Delphi_Prism,CBuilder);

var
aLanguage : Language;
begin
 aLanguage := Language(GetEnumValue(TypeInfo(Language),'CBuilder')) ;
end;
