Here is another useful one I came across a while ago, don’t remember what site but thanks to whoever wrote it. This Extension Method takes the String and converts it to the Enumeration Type that is specified.
/// Converts the string to the Enumeration Type supplied.
/// The String.
/// Enumeration of Type Supplied
/// Thrown if the string cannot be converted to the Enum type.
/// Thrown if the string is null.
public static T ToEnum(this string value)
where T : struct
return (T)Enum.Parse(typeof(T), value, true);
