  System.Enum Class
Calling writeTextBlock Enumerations in .Net are similar to enumerations in native Delphi. They provide a means of naming constant values, with a particular enumeration value only allowed to have one of the named values.
For example, the DayOfWeek enumeration has the following contents :
Sunday = 0
Monday = 1
Tuesday = 2
Wednesday = 3
Thursday = 4
Friday = 5
Saturday = 6

Unlike native Delphi, .Net Enumerations can be optionally treated as Flags. They therefore become equivalent to Sets in native Delphi. An enum is a set of flags when the [FlagsAttribute] is specified immediately prior to the Enum definition :
Flags = (Sexy, Clever, Handsome); After writeTextBlock
