If..then..elseif..else..end if

The if..then control statement is a script selection construct forcing the script execution to follow different paths depending on one or several logical conditions.

if - script and chart function (script and chart function)


If  condition then

  [ statements ]

{ elseif condition then

  [ statements ] }

[ else

  [ statements ] ]

end if


Since the if..then statement is a control statement and as such is ended with either a semicolon or end-of-line, each of its four possible clauses (if..then, elseif..then, else and end if) must not cross a line boundary.
