Hi

I would like to create apermision sensitive menu. when the user logs on his system mermisions are loaded from a database. I then iterate through the menu options to see if the menuitem must be enabled or disabled. I wanted to do this by setting a value in the tag field of the menuitem at creation. If the iser option AND the tag field is true enable the menu.
The following code gives me an error. what is the correct way to do this.

        private void SetPermissions(MenuItem Menu, int PerValue)
            {
            foreach (MenuItem MI in Menu.MenuItems)
            {
                if (MI.MenuItems.Count > 0)
                    SetPermissions(MI, PerValue);

                if (MI.Tag != null)
                {
                    int TagValue = MI.Tag == null ? 0 : Convert.ToInt32(MI.Tag);

                    if ((TagValue & PerValue))
                        MI.Enabled = true;
                    else
                        MI.Enabled = false;
                }
            }
            }

Thanks

I imagine that the error is that you can't implicitly convert the type int to a bool

Try this

if ((TagValue & PerValue)!=0)

Nice to know that I am not the only South African on EE tonight. I thought that most of the others would have slunk off and hidden away after the rugby this weekend.
