Logical operators

Logical Operators
Not

The Not operator returns True when the condition is False. Otherwise, it returns False. Example,

If Not (1 = 2) Then
   MessageBox.Show("(1 = 2) is False. So Not False is True")
End If

Truth Table Condition     Not Condition
True     False
False     True
And

The And operator returns True when the conditions of the left and right are True. Otherwise, it returns False. Both conditions are evaluated before the result is returned. Example,

If (1 = 1) And (2 = 2) Then
   MessageBox.Show("(1 = 1) is True. (2 = 2) is True. So True And True is True")
End If

Truth Table Condition1     Condition2     Condition1 And Condition2
True     True     True
True     False     False
False     True     False
False     False     False
AndAlso

The AndAlso operator returns False when the condition on the left hand side is False. Else, it returns True when the conditions of the left and right are True. Otherwise, it returns False. The condition on the right hand side is never evaluated when that on the left hand side is False. This is called short-circuited logic.
Truth Table Condition1     Condition2     Condition1 AndAlso Condition2
True     True     True
True     False     False
False     -     False
Or

The Or operator returns True when the condition on either side is True. Otherwise, it returns False. Both conditions are evaluated before the result is returned.
Truth Table Condition1     Condition2     Condition1 Or Condition2
True     True     True
True     False     True
False     True     True
False     False     False
OrElse

The OrElse operator returns True when the condition on the left hand side is True. Else, if the condition on the right hand side is True, it returns True. Otherwise, it returns False. The condition on the right hand side is never evaluated when that on the left hand side is True. This is called short-circuited logic.
Truth Table Condition1     Condition2     Condition1 OrElse Condition2
True     -     True
False     True     True
False     False     False
Xor

The Xor operator returns True when the condition on the left hand side or right hand side is True, but not when both are True. Xor means "Exclusive OR".
Truth Table Condition1     Condition2     Condition1 Xor Condition2
True     True     False
True     False     True
False     True     True
False     False     False
