blockly else statement

Post by nikos » Wednesday 17 January 2018 17:15

Hi all,

I am new here, so pls excuse me if I am asking something already answered (I have not found an answer yet).
So my question is why is the "else' statement missing from the "if" options? Is it implemented by some other means??
Its presence would save us from an awful lot of repetitions.

You have that:

If you want to run statement if none of the 'else if' branch evaluates to true, then just put an always true condition (with a user variable) in a last 'else if' branch.

Thanks misfit, that's a good idea to get around the lack of the else statement. But why is it missing from the Domoticz blockly?

blockly else if is only used a a placeholder for multiple ifs. check the wiki out. quite explained there. http://www.domoticz.com/wiki/Blockly
There is some activity regarding "if else" if it's possible to make it a real else if.
