Is there a switch case extension instead of numerous if/then/else?

I tried, but could not find one. No relevant topic here either.

How many if/then/else variants?

If there are so many, maybe what you needed was a table or dictionary lookup.

See the question/answer/score table in How do I program multiple choice questions that include different text for each wrong answer.
Because the score per answer is part of the table, there is no need for an if/then test to decide to add to a score or not, since the score increment is built into the table structure.

This is called table oriented programming.

is that for AI2?

An opportunity for extension developers. In many programming languages it is called a Case statement. App Inventor would certainly benefit from a Case statement. I am not aware of any current extension that can do this with App Inventor.

For all the extension developers, here is some java code that shows how to write a Case statement that might help making an extension.


that will be awesome, btw, can anyone make list component more powerful such as sublist

A post was split to a new topic: Switch Case Extension

I moved the new Switch Case extension by @marco_tanzi into its own thread, so later we will be able to find it again...
