I want to allow users a  simple search  with  2 textboxes and one combo box

[                   ]  or/and [              ]

My conditional If  would be something like this:

string sele = "";
if   (operator.Text == "or")
                            {
                            sele = "text.Contains(textbox1) == true || text.Contains(textbox2)";
                            }
                        else
                            {
                            sele = "text.Contains(textbox1) == true && text.Contains(textbox2)";
                            }

                                 // now I would like to use      
                            if (sele)                   ----------> not allowed in c#
                               {
                                   lot a code here
                               }

Any help for a Proof of Concept programmer?

I see 2 options:

1 - make sele a boolean and assign without the quotes
bool sele = false;
if   (operator.Text == "or")
                            {
                            sele = text.Contains(textbox1.Text) || text.Contains(textbox2.Text);
                            }
                        else
                            {
                            sele = text.Contains(textbox1.Text) && text.Contains(textbox2.Text);
                            }

                            if (sele)
                               { 
                                   //lot a code here
                               }

Open in new window

2 - use boolean logic to make 1 big if statement (of which only 1 part will be executed so no waste of resources)
if (
    ( operator.Text == "or"  && (text.Contains(textbox1.Text) || text.Contains(textbox2.Text) ) )
    ||
    ( operator.Text == "and" && (text.Contains(textbox1.Text) && text.Contains(textbox2.Text) ) )
)
                               { 
                                   //lot a code here
                               }
