neat way of saying not(boolean)

I am using VB6:

My code is as follows:
                    dim tEnabled as boolean
                    If .Enabled = "EnableIfElectronic" Then
                        tEnabled = isElectronic
                    ElseIf .Enabled = "DisableIfElectronic" Then
                        tEnabled = not(isElectronic)  'note the 'not() in this line is obviously only my wishful thinking.
                    End If


I know I could write a quickfunction, or just add any extra 'if statement' ie:
                    dim tEnabled as boolean
                    If .Enabled = "EnableIfElectronic" Then
                        tEnabled = isElectronic
                    ElseIf .Enabled = "DisableIfElectronic" Then
                         if isElectronic then    
                                 tEnabled = false
                         else
                                 tEnabled = true
                        endif
                    End If


Just wondering if their is a neater way of doing this, such as a not() type function??

Thanks,
Cassandra

Just remove brackets:

 tEnabled = Not isElectronic

Example:
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim a As Boolean
    Dim b As Boolean
    a = True
    b = Not a
    Print a, b
End Sub
