22-Logical Operators


This Visual Basic tutorial is all about Logical Operators.
Logical operators is similar to Boolean expressions that return a boolean result. These And, Or, AndAlso, OrElse, and Xor operators are called binary because they acquire two operands. But  there is one operator that is not binary and it is called unary that takes a single operand, an example of it is the Not operator.


Binary Operators:

It performs logical conjunction on two Boolean expression . For instance, if the expression is true and false the results is False ,if  the expression is true and true the results is True and if the expression is false or true the results is True.


  1. Dim name As String = "Kenjie"
  2. Dim age As Integer = 12
  3. If name = "Kenjie" And age = 12 Then
  4. 'the statements return True
  5. End If
  6. If name = "Kenjie" Or age = 13 Then
  7. 'the statements return True
  8. End If
  9. If name = "Kenjie" And age = 13 Then
  10. 'the statements return False
  11. End If


Unary Operators :

It performs logical negation on a Boolean expression. For instance, if the expression is true the results is true and if the expression is false the results is False


  1. Dim name As String = "Kenjie"
  2. Dim age As Integer = 12
  3. If Not name = "Kenjie" Then
  4. 'the statements return False
  5. End If
  7. If Not age = 13 Then
  8. 'the statements return True
  9. End If
