Converting Enum Values to Generic List

Working with Enum values is very useful in so many circumstances and when you need to covert these enum values to List<SelectListItem>, here is how you can do it;

public List<SelectListItem> GetPaymentOptions()
    PaymentOptions[] values = (PaymentOptions[])Enum.GetValues(typeof(PaymentOptions));

    var list = from value in values
               select new SelectListItem()
                   Value = ((int)value).ToString(),
                   Text = value.ToString()

    List<SelectListItem> paymentOptions = list.ToList<SelectListItem>();

    return paymentOptions;
That is all- nice and simple!

Happy coding!
