PHP Switch Statement

Recommended Posts

I Am getting a syntax error with this code:

switch(true){
case ($owp >= .667){
$region_points = $region_points+14;
}
case (($owp < .667) &&($owp >= .5)){
$region_points = $region_points+12;
}
case (($owp < .5) &&($owp >= .333)){
$region_points = $region_points+10;
}
case ($owp < .333){
$region_points = $region_points+8;
}
}

I got this from the php.net docs but i guess you can't do this. What is the code to do this idea?  Any help is appreciated.

Your syntax error comes from trying to start integers with a decimal. Try using 0.5 instead of .5 etc etc

Thorpe, I tried that and I am getting the same parse error at the first line of the switch statement.

Sorry, your syntax is pretty whack here. Try...

[code=php:0]
switch(true){
  case ($owp >= 0.667) :
      $region_points = $region_points+14;
      break;
  case (($owp < 0.667) && ($owp >= 0.5)) :
      $region_points = $region_points+12;
      break;
  case (($owp < 0.5) && ($owp >= 0.333)) :
      $region_points = $region_points+10;
      break;
  case ($owp < 0.333) :
      $region_points = $region_points+8;
      break;
}
[/code]

Ive never used this method with mutliple choices (ie &&) so... might not work. You really probably should really be using if else ifs here.
