I’m trying to target only one if statement (either this or that), and else if would work in this case but I’m sure if Javascript has an ‘else if’?

Kinda confusing but I’m “in the learning process”... :P

The “else if” statement in JS is like writing nested if/else statements but the else statements don’t have brackets making it on one line. :)

if (...) {

} else {
     if (...) {

     } else {
          if (...) {

          }
     }
}

Wow, I can’t believe someone made a plugin for basic conditional statements, that’s crazy.

@Vasilios – I think your example is more complicated than it needs to be :)

basic else if:

var myNum = 10;
if (myNum > 10) {
   alert('Greater than 10.');
} 
else if (myNum < 2) {
   alert('Less than 2.');
}
else {
    alert(myNum);
}

switch statement

Or use a switch statement (as long as you understand how they work, certain cases can fall through to another if you aren’t careful):


switch(someVariable) {
   case 1:
      block of code;
      break;
   case 2:
      block of code;
      break;
   default:
      block of code;
}

Like I said, you really don’t need to write it that way.

I was just writing that showing how it would normally be written without else if. :)
