    I tried something like that:
    Code (CSharp):
    1.   public enum FactionType
    2.     {
    3.         Friendly,
    4.         Enemy
    5.     }
    6.  
    7.     [Serializable]
    8.     public struct Faction : IComponentData
    9.     {
    10.         public FactionType Value;
    11.     }
    12.  
    13.     public class FactionComponent : ComponentDataWrapper<Faction>
    14.     {
    15.     }
    But changing the Value on the FactionComponent doesn't change it on the Entity ComponentData.
    I though I was doing something wrong...
    but I checked the "MeshInstanceRendererComponent" which has a ShadowType enum also, and same behaviour...
    You can set the ShadowType to anything at the end it will still be Off

    Can show the code where you make the actual assignment? (Remember you are working with structs)

    I don't have assignment code. I just have the Component on a GameObject and I set the serialized data.
    You can look at the samples that uses "MeshInstanceRendererComponent".
    When you change the "ShadowType" on this component, the entity will not get the changes.
