When you use And, Or or Not between 2 values, the VB compiler analyzes the context. It will perform a logical (boolean) operation if the operator is used with Boolean values, a bitwise operation (as in your question) if the operators are integer values.

Another thing that you might need to also know is the representation of 0x1000 in VB is &H1000

Thus:

flags Or &H1000
flags And Not &H1000
