If Else If

I am trying to create an if else statement using ASP/ VBScript

When I use the following syntax:

<% If (rsSiteDetail.Fields.Item("OpenToPublic").Value) = "1" then Response.Write "Open to the Public"%>

This appears to work fine. When the Field OpentoPublic has a 1, it prints the statement and when it does not, it does not print it.

But I want to be able to choose between 3 settings. So I tried the following syntax:

  <% If (rsSiteDetail.Fields.Item("OpenToPublic").Value) = "1" then Response.Write "Open to the Public"
                                                [Elseif (rsSiteDetail.Fields.Item("OpenToPublic").Value) = "2" then [Response.Write "Viewable from Street"]
                                                [Elseif (rsSiteDetail.Fields.Item("OpenToPublic").Value) = "0" then [Response.Write "Not Open to Public"]
                                %>

This results in the following error:                                        

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000d'

Type mismatch: 'Elseif (rsSiteDetail.Fields.Item("OpenToPublic").Value) ...'



Any suggestions? I have tried various placements of [] but that doesn't seem to make any difference.

Thanks

Why not use a simple switch-case statement ?

Sorry.. I think in VB.NET it is called  Select Case contruct

Select rsSiteDetail.Fields.Item("OpenToPublic").Value
    Case 1
        Response.Write "Open to the Public"
    Case 2
        Response.Write "Viewable from Street"
    Case 3
        Response.Write "Not Open to Public"
   Case Else
        Response.Write " "
End Select

Select...Case Statements

The structure of If...ElseIf...Else is as under:

If [Condition1] then
  'Do following

elseif [Condition2] then
 'Do following

else
 'Do following

end if

If the "If" statement is only one line statement, then you dont need to add end if at the end.
