swselecttype_e to string? (select feature to mate)

Is there any way to get the "type" from SelectByID2(name,type,.....) as a string from the Feature object?


I've Tried:


((SldWorks.Entity) feat).GetType()


But this gives an integer. the SelectByID2 requires the type as a string input. I'm looking for the strings listed under Remarks here:

2018 SOLIDWORKS API Help - swSelectType_e Enumeration 


I also tried selecting with:


This does select the feature but doesn't seem to work with mate5.


Basically I am trying to get a feature object based on some criteria and then select it to mate to something else later. Please let me know if there's some way to do this
