Thank you Ciege for looking into it- following error returned on compile --
The non-generic method 'System.Enum.Parse(System.Type, string)' cannot be used with type arguments (CS0308) - C:\GenericMethods\Enumeration.cs:64,19

Code: Select all

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Collections;



      enum TestEnv
        {
        	A1,
        	A2,
        	A3,
        	
        }

 Console.WriteLine("Type Env Name");
           string userValue = Console.ReadLine();
           
           TestEnv myValue;

               //convert userValue to myValue
               //if (Enum.Parse(typeof(TestEnv ),userValue)) //converting userValue,ignoring case true,
   
         if (Enum.Parse<TestEnv >(userValue, true, out myValue))//converting userValue,ignoring case true,
         {														//outputting myValue
           switch (myValue) 
 
           {
           	case TestEnv.A1:
           		Console.WriteLine("A1 ");
           		break;
           		
               case TestEnv.A2:
           		Console.WriteLine("A2 ");
           		break;	
           			
           	case TestEnv.A2:
           		Console.WriteLine("A3 ");
           		break;
           		
           	default:
           		Console.WriteLine("Try again");
           		break;
           		
           }
           
        }
    else
    {
    	Console.WriteLine("No Env Available ");
    }
           Console.ReadLine();
           
   
        }
    }
