No reverse conversion for EnumToString
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Currently there isn't a reverse conversion for EnumToString, which would convert the string back to the respective type variable value. Could we get this function attached as additional information, added to the typename class?

Hello OfficialWardog.
The function has been added internally and will appear in one of the future updates.
