Action

Allows conditional execution or branching, based on the evaluation of a Boolean expression.

 

 

Syntax

IF expression THEN

 

[ ELSEIF expression THEN ]

 

[ ELSE ]

 

END IF

 

 

Remarks

Expression

Any expression that evaluates to true or false.

 

 

The one line version of IF can be used :

IF expression THEN statement [ ELSE statement ]

The use of [ELSE] is optional.

 

Tests like IF THEN can also be used with bits and bit indexes.

IF var.bit = 1 THEN

          ^--- bit is a variable or numeric constant in the range from 0-255

 

You can use OR or AND to test on multiple conditions. The conditions are evaluated from left to right.

IF A=OR A=OR A=OR B>10 THEN

IF A=AND A>THEN 

 

 

Dim Var As Byte, Idx As Byte

Var = 255

Idx = 1

If Var.idx = 1 Then

   Print "Bit 1 is 1"

EndIf

Example

Dim A As Integer

A = 10

If A = 10 Then                                             'test expression

Print "This part is executed."                           'this will be printed

Else

Print "This will never be executed."                     'this not

End If

If A = 10 Then Print "New in BASCOM"

If A = 10 Then Goto Label1 Else print "A<>10"

Label1:

 

Rem The following example shows enhanced use of IF THEN

If A.15 = 1 Then                                           'test for bit

Print "BIT 15 IS SET"

EndIf

Rem the following example shows the 1 line use of IF THEN [ELSE]

If A.15 = 0 Then Print "BIT 15 is cleared" Else Print "BIT 15 is set"
