A quick way to parse a number to js enum
Hi all!

I'm having a subtle problem with enumerations in javascript. Let me first outline the problem.
I have an enumeration in javascript (using JSON) that look like this:

var EventsToShow = {"MyEvents" : 1, "AllEvents" : 2 };

Now this is all good but when I want to parse a number (ie. 1 or 2) to an EventsToShow enum I have to use a switch statement (which is always at least 5 lines of code) like so:

switch([1 or 2])
  case EventsToShow.MyEvents:
    alert("This is an EventsToShow.MyEvents");
  case EventsToShow.AllEvents:
    alert("This is an EventsToShow.AllEvents");

My question is: Is there a simple way to parse an Enum to a number (integer) and vice versa, perhaps using eval?

Cheers, Jon!
