Is it possible to use a UDF as the Expression in a Switch statement?

Recommended Posts

Here's a working of my simple code test.

Global $var

Call ("EnterData")

Switch Int($var)
    Case 0
        MsgBox(1,"","entry was 0 ")
    Case 1
        MsgBox(1,"","entry was 1 ")
    Case 2
        MsgBox(1,"","entry was 2 ")
    Case Else
        MsgBox(1,"","entry was something else")
EndSwitch

;---------------
Func EnterData()
    $var = InputBox("enter a number","Enter a number between 0 and 9 :")
EndFunc

Is there a way to use the function call that fetches the value to evaluated in the Switch statement? I tried the following but it always resolves to Case 0.

Global $var

Switch Int(EnterData())
    Case 0
        MsgBox(1,"","entry was 0 ")
    Case 1
        MsgBox(1,"","entry was 1 ")
    Case 2
        MsgBox(1,"","entry was 2 ")
    Case Else
        MsgBox(1,"","entry was something else")
EndSwitch


Func EnterData()
    $var = InputBox("","Enter a number between 0 and 9 :")
EndFunc

Try this:

Global $var = EnterData()

Switch $var
    Case 0
        MsgBox(1,"","entry was 0 ")
    Case 1
        MsgBox(1,"","entry was 1 ")
    Case 2
        MsgBox(1,"","entry was 2 ")
    Case Else
        MsgBox(1,"","entry was something else")
EndSwitch

;---------------
Func EnterData()
    Return Int(InputBox("enter a number","Enter a number between 0 and 9 :"))
EndFun

Or something like this?

Switch EnterData()
    Case 0
        MsgBox(1, "", "entry was 0 ")
    Case 1
        MsgBox(1, "", "entry was 1 ")
    Case 2
        MsgBox(1, "", "entry was 2 ")
    Case Else
        MsgBox(1, "", "entry was something else")
EndSwitch

Func EnterData()
    Return Int(InputBox("", "Enter a number between 0 and 9 :"))
EndFunc   ;==>EnterData

Thank you both for introducing me to the Return statement. KaFu's code put the UDF in the Switch statement, which is what I was hoping is possible.
