How to exit the function if it does not pass if statment? In delphi i always use Exit; function however, in C++ it does not work. Any ideas how should i do that? And example of such function:

void __fastcall TForm1::FormCreate(TObject *Sender)
{
  for (int i = 0; i < ParamCount(); i++)
  {
    if (LowerCase(ParamStr(i)) == "-options")
    {
      Panel1->Visible = True;
      exit(0); // it should exit the program here
    }
  }

// MORE CODE HERE

}

Hi kabix,

In order to  exit the function you can do several things.......

1) if you use the exit() function, you will exit the program, not just the function.

void __fastcall TForm1::FormCreate(TObject *Sender)
{
  for (int i = 0; i < ParamCount(); i++)
  {
    if (LowerCase(ParamStr(i)) == "-options")
    {
      Panel1->Visible = True;
      exit(0); // it should exit the program here
    }
  }

// MORE CODE HERE

}

2) if you use the return; you will exit just the function
Note: I said that it is return; as the function is void.
I'm not sure if it is a standard convention, but in MSVC6 it is allowed to use return; in void functions

void __fastcall TForm1::FormCreate(TObject *Sender)
{
  for (int i = 0; i < ParamCount(); i++)
  {
    if (LowerCase(ParamStr(i)) == "-options")
    {
      Panel1->Visible = True;
      return; // it should exit the program here
    }
  }

// MORE CODE HERE

}

Hope this helps

Just to supplement Tincho's comment:

Tincho> I'm not sure if it is a standard convention, but in MSVC6 it is allowed to use return; in void functions

It is standard and should work with any compiler.

"return" is the equivalent of the Delphi "Exit".  Both exit the current function, not the program.  If the function is declared to return a value, that value must be specified in a return statement.
