Problem disabling an element of a set

I have a a control that I am working with.  When I look at it in the Object inspector, I see the properties.  One of the properties (SearchProperties) has a '+' sign beside it.  I click on the '+' and the properties expand.  One of the sub-properties is of particular interest.  It is called 'okIncludeSubFolder'.  it can be either True or False.  It is one of a set of sub-properties of SearchProperties.  My issue is that I need to be able to set it to True or False PROGRAMATICALLY.  

I can set it to true without problem....

    If ProcessSubFolders.Checked = True then
        ES1.SearchOptions := [okIncludeSubFolder]

I cannot figure out how to set it to False.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks
George S

This will work

 ES1.SearchOptions := ES1.SearchOptions - [okIncludeSubFolder];

you should also set it this way....

If ProcessSubFolders.Checked = True then
        ES1.SearchOptions := WS1.SearchOptions +  [okIncludeSubFolder];

that way the other properties of the TSearchOptions arent affected.

one more thing.....

It is a better practice not to use "if a=true.."

just use " if a"

so your code would be...

If ProcessSubFolders.Checked then
        ES1.SearchOptions := WS1.SearchOptions +  [okIncludeSubFolder];
