Best practice for alerts on a page

Hi All

We have a page that displays data on meeting - these have meta data pertaining to them like IsApproved, IsComplete etc. Users interact with this data and have certain permissions like CanEdit, CanUpdate, CanAdd etc to display warnings or show hide buttons etc.

I have done this routinely with nested if's... or  switch...statements.

This app is a bit more complex, what is best practice for this sort of thing?

you could use bitwise AND/OR

int permissions
CanEdit        0x01
CanUpdate 0x02
CanAdd        0x04

user has edit and update  == permission would be 3
edit/update/add                       permission would be 7
update/add                               permission would be 6

There are too many ways of doing this but this is one way
