ASP Classic If Statement (If..ElseIf..Else..End If)

ASP Classic Code Snippet:
 A flashcard from our ASP Classic Flashcards Library
 A code snippet from our ASP Classic Code Snippets Page


ASP Classic If Statement

The End If is optional if you put your code on a single line.

Syntax Example:
//Single line example.
If X = True Then Response.Write "hello" 
//Complete example.
If X = True Then
  '>>>do something.
ElseIf Y = "ABC" Then
  '>>>do something.
  '>>>do something.
End If

Full HTML Page Example

Here's a real example you can save as an ASP page and try out.

Option Explicit
Dim StatementVar


If StatementVar=1 Then
Response.Write "War doesn't determine who's right - only who's left."
ElseIf StatementVar=2 Then
Response.Write "Lost time is never found again."
Response.Write "History will be kind to me for I intend to write it."
End If

You will have to change the value of StatementVar to see the other quotes.

Optional End If

With ASP you don't always have to include the ending End If. This makes for some clean looking code in certain situations. For example when you have a series of conditional code lines that each resule in a single line of code.

Here's a simple demo:

If true then Response.Write "hi "
If true then Response.Write "Mike "
If true then Response.Write "Prestwood."

The method of the serene champion is a pleasant book. The essayist has been composing for quite a while. Positive things like bestessay uk ought to be valued. Difficult work ought to be paid in a proper way so new things and thoughts can win.
