Default Enum gets initalized to first value

I've defined an enum as below
    public enum Modes
    {
        Add,
        Edit,
        Update
    }

& i am using it in my page with global scope i.e before page_load

Modes _currentMode;
by default currentMode gets initalized to "Add" & always to the first value in the enum.
Is this normal behaviour?

Yes. Your enum has 3 values, an instance of it has to be one of those values. The behavior is what you see.

You could add a new first value of an "Unknown" mode.
