Defining multiple conditions for if-else in

I have a if-else structure in my code and i'm using below code. I don't know is there more easier and more logic structure for that so i need to ask you is there anybody have experience?

 If obj.intent.val = GetIntentStatus(0) Or obj.intent.val = GetIntentStatus(1) Or obj.intent.val = GetIntentStatus(2) Then

'Do something

End If

Open in new window

And GetIntentStatus is reading the combobox item's selected index.

        Private Shared Function GetIntentStatus() As Integer()
            Dim cbo As ToolStripComboBox = GUI.cboModuleBuild_list_intent
            If cbo.SelectedIndex = 0 Then
                Return {0, 0, 0}
            ElseIf cbo.SelectedIndex = 1 Then
                Return {1, 1, 1}
            ElseIf cbo.SelectedIndex = 2 Then
                Return {2, 2, 2}
            ElseIf cbo.SelectedIndex = 3 Then
                Return {0, 0, 1}
            ElseIf cbo.SelectedIndex = 4 Then
                Return {0, 1, 2}
                Return {0, 0, 0}
            End If
        End Function

Open in new window

As here you can see my obj.intent.val can equal 0,1,2 also i need as selected index 3 or 4 multiple conditions like obj.intent.val = 0 or obj.intent.val = 1 or obj.intent.val=2

You could use switch, but I don't think it provides any real advantage.

switch (obj.intent.val)
    case GetIntentStatus(0):
        'do stuff
    case GetIntentStatus(1):
        'do stuff
    case GetIntentStatus(2):
          'do stuff
