It was simply that I wanted to protect against erroneus input to a method that took an enum as a parameter, only I wasn't sure how to go about it. So I stumbled into Enum.IsDefined and then spent quite some time trying to work out how it behaved under different circumstances, i.e. what response was given to different inputs. On reflection neither using an enum in the particular scenario I had nor using IsDefined are that smart, using the Strategy Pattern[^] instead would probably be a better idea.
