Is there an "Else if" in VB?

In C++ you can do something like:


If (x =1){
//do something
}
else if(x=2){
//something else
}
else if(x=3){
//something else
}
else{
//catch all
}

Is there a VB 6 equivalent?

Thanks

Yes

If (x = 1) Then
'do somthing
Else
If (x = 2) Then
'somthing else
Else
If (x = 3) Then
'somthing else
Else
'catch all
End If
End If
End If

Sure, it is called "ElseIf", but you could just as well use a Case statement (that would be Switch in C++) for that example.

I believe this code matches closer to yours:

If x =1 Then
   //do something
ElseIf x=2 Then
   //something else
ElseIf x=3 Then
   //something else
Else
   //catch all
End If

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the code you gave me is equivalent to:

If (x =1){
    //do something
}
else{
     if(x=2){
          //something else
     }
     else{
          if(x=3){
               //something else
          }
         else{
              //catch all
          }
      }
}

which is not quite as elegant as the C++ way.  or maybe I am being foolish/picky

I wish I didn't have to.  CGI/Perl is unpleasant to me.
