hello, i saw a demo code which change the function of trigger output from byte by byte to bit by bit, by using both of this symbol,
|= and &=
i wonder what is the function of it.. cause i cant find any solution from google~

## Solution 1

Hi,

to set a bit x, use this functionality:
`number |= 1 << x;`
to clear a bit x, use this code:
`number &= ~(1 << x);`
to toggle a bit x, use this code:
`number ^= 1 << x;`
See here for an explanation:

sorry i m a bit confuse with this code

if(((CStatic*)pWnd)->GetBitmap() != m_bmp_Output_ON)
{
((CStatic*)pWnd)->SetBitmap(m_bmp_Output_ON);
wResult_4th_8Bits |= 0x80;
}
else
{
((CStatic*)pWnd)->SetBitmap(m_bmpOFF);
wResult_4th_8Bits &= 0x7f;
}

can u please explain it to me? thanks

The line wResult_4th_8Bits |= 0x80; basically only sets the 8th bit and the line wResult_4th_8Bits &= 0x7f; resets any bit above the 7th bit and leaves the lowest 7 bit unchanged, maybe just to convert a 32bit/16bit/8bit value to 7bit. Why this code performs this action, I can't tell you - this is not clear out of the context.
