hummm... ok, so how to you get a constant to be a byte and storing 7 for the
decimal value?

The compiler normally uses the smallest possible type that can represent the value. You can force it however by using e.g.

   MyConst = Word(42);

ok... so in the situation this thread is covering:

  foldhiddenbit = byte(7);
  foldhiddenmask = byte(1 shl foldhiddenbit);
  currentfoldhiddenbit = byte(6);
  currentfoldhiddenmask = byte(1 shl currentfoldhiddenbit);
  foldlevelmask = byte(not (foldhiddenmask or currentfoldhiddenmask));

is the way to do it?

or are you saying that you cannot use a typed constant in the init of another
(typed) constant?
