View Full Version : Enum Syntax Question

01-13-2009, 12:29 AM
I found the following syntax for an Enum:

#0,Dpin,Cpin,SLpin,#8,Bits 'Set Dpin,Cpin,SLpin and Bit constant

I understand the enum declaration but what is confusing me is the #8 in the middle next to the Bits mnemonic. Is this specifying that the Bits mnemonic has the value of 8 rather than the next sequential value? I hope that's the case because I would like to use non-sequential values in some of my enums (bit masks come to mind first thing).

If that isn't what it means, could someone point out what it does mean?

Your inference is correct: the #n notation reinitializes the enumeration sequence to the new value.
