A more efficient way of writing an if then Structure

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I have an integer variable named MyVariable in a Visual Basic Project. I also have three Boolean Variables named Bool1, Bool2 and Bool3 in my project. I have an If Then statement structure like the following:

  If MyVariable = 1 Then
            Bool1 = True

        ElseIf MyVariable = 2 Then
            Bool2 = True

        ElseIf MyVariable = 3 Then
            Bool3 = True
  End If

I am wondering if there is a more efficient way of writing this if then structure. Thank you for your help in anticipation.
