Join Gerry O'Brien for an in-depth discussion in this video Controlling program flow with switch, part of Learning C# (2014).
Finally, let's look at our switch statement as another way of determining a…code branch to execute based on a value being passed in or a value being compared.…So, a switch statement starts off with the keyword switch…and accepts a local variable to be used for the comparison.…Now in this case, we've simply declared another integer…variable called value and assigned it the value zero.…And in a switch statement, we enclose everything with curly braces.…We used something called a case statement.…Now it's important to note that you use the keyword case, followed by the value…you want to compare against this value, and you end it with a full colon.…
Place your line of code that you want to execute if this evaluates to true.…And then when it's complete, we evaluate a break.…If we remove this break statement, C# will complain because it won't know which…line of code it is it really wants to execute based on a certain case.…So this break statement must be in place to…provide the separation between each one of your case statements.…
