Join Bruce Van Horn for an in-depth discussion in this video Switch statements, part of C# Essential Training: 2 Flow Control, Arrays, and Exception Handling.
- [Narrator] Now that we've seen the…if and else if structure, I want to show you…something that does the same thing…but a lot of programmers prefer this structure…to the if and else if structure.…So I'm talking about a switch statement here.…Let's do public string and we'll just flip it around…for this one and say secondary or primary.…As before, we'll take a color…and this time, we're going to do…almost exactly the same thing…but this time, we're going to use a switch statement.…
So what I'll do here is, I'll create a result,…just like I did before.…And I'll make it an empty string…and this time I'll do a switch statement.…So a switch statement works like the if else structure.…You have to put an expression in the…parenthesis for the switch.…In this case, the expression we're looking for is…color.to lower.…And from here, you just build what we call cases.…
So you type in case…and then the case you want to evaluate,…such as red…and then the code that you actually want to execute,…if the case is actually red,…if color.to lower equals red,…
