about else if statements

Recommended Posts

hi, I have a question about the code below which has always been on my mind.Is there a limit to how many times I use the elseif(condition) ?.the site only mentions that several blocks of code can be executed but i don't know the amount of code that can't be used.first i'll use the if statement to check if user inputs are empty and in the else statement it would contain more condition statements: in the if(condition) and elseif(condition) i will validate(for these conditions it would show true that there has been an error like for example: the users didn't use a proper email address) user inputs and in the else im plan to put user input in database( since the other conditions aren't true it would be safe to enter user data in database).thanks if (condition){code to be executed if condition is true;}elseif (condition){code to be executed if condition is true;}else{code to be executed if condition is false;}

The number of if/elseif/else nests shouldn't be a problem. I didn't understand WTH the rest of your question was about, maybe I missed the prequel.

WTH = what the heck, I didn't understand the rest of your post except the part about the if/elseif/else.

I already know what wth means but i didnt know if you were trying to be rude to me.Wth or wtf is suppose to be offensive statements but i guess everyone doesn't know so nevermind.

Ok.Thanks It is alright if I don't receive your help anymore :).Im fine if others will do the same.For my last comment I wasnt saying that people who use wth or wtf are being rude or offensive but It only depends on how those statements are used and in what situation. If I explain further I might confuse you.I usually get made fun of about the way I write on the net.Good bye and thanks allot for your help. Sorry if you think I offended you. Edited by cherri8

Remember though... with all the if, elseif's, only one can be true, if none are true, then the else will be executed:

if(){ }elseif() // for example: if this one is true, this gets executed and the ones below are not checked{ }elseif(){ }else // if none of the above are true, then this gets executed{ }

I was just trying to tell you that if there were more questions in the part that I didn't understand that you should rephrase them. The part I didn't understand looked like superfluous information about the first question.
