Hi Experts,

I am getting following error when I try to retrieve value (1 or 0) from database.How to get rid of this error?

"operator == cannot be applied to operands of type bool and int"


pubic bool checkifempexist(int ecode)


//if employee exist in database  returns non-zero else returns zero


 return false; //non-zero


return true;  //zero


Code to check if employee code exist or not


bool isemployeeexists(employee e)


var rep=new employeerepo();

//retrieves 1 or 0 
var empcode=rep.checkifempexist(e.code)

if(empcode==1)  //Throwing error here
return true
return false;
