Moving right along from our looping structure,…let's take a look at our decision structures.…We have a couple that we're going to focus on.…We have an if, we have an else if, and then we have a switch statement.…Let's look at the if statement first.…And in here, what we're doing is we're creating a…Boolean variable called result, and we're setting it equal to true.…Now, the thing that's interesting about Boolean variables is…that C# automatically knows that it's a Boolean type.…So, when I choose equals and I start to…type, C# knows that I'm looking for a Boolean type.…
And you can see that it highlights it in blue.…So, it knows that it's a keyword as well.…So our if structure, as we take a look at it, it starts off with the keyword if.…And we're checking for what result says in here.…So we're checking for a value.…We're, we're doing a conditional check on something in the parentheses.…If it's true, it will execute the code that is…within the curly braces, and in our case we also added…an else clause to this if statement which says if result…
