I use the switch statement a lot - but only for basic "case" tests and
have not been able to get:
"If the caseValue is equal to the switchExpression, or the
caseCondition evaluates to true"
working. Here is an example that I just changed from "if then else" -
whats wrong with it:
case "Go to script object"
case (mainChoice is empty or mainChoice is "This menu script")
put the long id of me into scriptObject
case (word 1 of mainChoice is "Library")
put the name of stack secondChoice into scriptObject
edit the script of stack "libOPN_Unsorted"
My understanding is that:
(word 1 of mainChoice is "Library")
is an expression which evaluated to true or false - but steeping
through i the debugger when mainChoice is "Library" the case statement
is not triggered and instead the default case statement is activated?
