Learn PHP-21 : if… else… else if Statements

Posted: November 20, 2010 in PHP

We use the if… else… else if statements to establish conditional logic and evaluate things when needed in our scripts. Sometimes you have to evaluate values to then give the user the correct output on page once the variable value is checked.


<?php $current_temperature = 37; // Current South Pole temperature // Then the if statement will evaluate it for us if ($current_temperature > 32) { // Set things to melt if the temp is exceeding 32(freezing) echo "Doom! The icecaps will melt, sea levels will rise."; } // If the temp is still freezing(32), nothing at all will happen in this script ?>

The browser is shown like below

Doom! The icecaps will melt, sea levels will rise.

Learn PHP-20 : The ?(ternary) Operator

Posted: November 14, 2010 in PHP

There is an operator in PHP that is very similar in functionality to the if statement called the ternary (?) conditional operator. It evaluates to check if the first subexpression is true, if it is it will return the value of the second subexpression, if the first subexpression is false it will return the value of the third subexpression.

Here is a code example using flavor variables and checking to see if the shop has our favorite flavor using ?:

// Let's say our choice is chocolate
$flavor_choice = "chocolate";
// And we do not know it yet but all they have is vanilla
$output = ($flavor_choice == "vanilla") ? "Yes, we have vanilla." : "Sorry we do not have $flavor_choice.";
// output the appropriate subexpression
echo "$output";

The output is shown below :

Sorry we do not have chocolate.
