VB6 to English or Xojo

I’m looking at a 2001 function (vb6) and I’m having trouble understanding the If statement.

Sub x(a As byte) As byte

If (a AND &H80) then


its a bitwise and

basically testing it the high bit is set

that code will NOT work in Xojo “as is”

basically it needs to be
If (a AND &H80) <> 0 then

That worked thanks.
