Setting userAccountControl Property

I am rewriting a VB app in C#, and this line of code is cauing me problems...


newUser.Properties("userAccountControl").Value = userACFlags Or &H200 Or &H10000 Xor &H2


newUser.Properties["userAccountControl"].Value = userACFlags || &H200 || &H10000 ^ &H2;

All of the "&H" values generate an error "not in the namespace." What should these be set to? (JHenry, I know you're out there, so please help.)

newUser.Properties["userAccountControl"].Value = userACFlags || 0x200 || 0x10000 ^ 0x2;

That did fix the hex problem, but this generates an error:

object userACFlags = newUser.Properties["userAccountControl"].Value;
                  newUser.Properties["userAccountControl"].Value = userACFlags || 0x200 || 0x10000 ^ 0x2;

Operator || cannot be applied to objects and int.

Any thoughts?

Sorry it should be bitwise Or operator

newUser.Properties["userAccountControl"].Value = userACFlags | 0x200 | 0x10000 ^ 0x2;

Tried that, too. But same error.

Operator '|' cannot be applied to operands of type 'object' and 'int'

Should I set userACFlags to some other type?
Yes, userACFlags should be a numeric type, int should be fine for that job here.
Fernando SotoRetiredCommented:
Yes to int
