|= Operator (C# Reference)
Visual Studio 2008
The OR assignment operator.
An expression using the |= assignment operator, such as
x |= y
is equivalent to
x = x | y
except that x is only evaluated once. The | operator performs a bitwise logical OR operation on integral operands and logical OR on bool operands.
