Databind an Enum to a Combobox

Array enumValues = Enum.GetValues(typeof(your enum type here));
ArrayList enumList = new ArrayList();

foreach (Enum value in enumValues)
    enumList.Add(new KeyValuePair<Enum, string>(value, value.ToString()));

ComboBox.DataSource = enumList;

“DisplayMember” and “ValueMember” properties can then be set on the combobox to point to the Key and Value properties of the enumlist.
