Issues with Select Case and ContinueCase

Hello

I want multiple expressions from a Select Case to be evaluated. According to the behaviour of Select Case, only the first true statement is executed. Using ContinueCase will execute the code on the next case without evaluating it.

Here's an example of the code:

Func _mapFTM()
    _easyMap("K:", "\\Location\Public")
    _easyMap("P:", "\\Location\Users\" & @UserName)
    Select
        Case _inGroup("group1", @UserName)
            _easyMap("M:", "\\Location\Primedia")
            _easyMap("X:", "\\Location\Course Management System 4.0")
            ContinueCase
        Case _inGroup("Group2", @UserName)
            _easyMap("S:", "\\Location\example1")
            ContinueCase
        Case _inGroup("Group3", @UserName)
            _easyMap("Z:", "\\Location\Example2")
            ContinueCase
    EndCase
EndFunc

In case the user is on multiple groups, only the first true statement will be executed.

How can I do this?

The only way I can think about is using If statements, but Select is a cleaner way.

Thanks

How can I evaluate multiple expressions and run the code on them without writing a messy code?

Thanks!

As this is not possible, you will have to use another way - this could well be a possibility (untested)

Func _mapFTM()
    _easyMap("K:", "\\Location\Public")
    _easyMap("P:", "\\Location\Users\" & @UserName)
    ; Now check each group in turn
    For $i = 1 To 3
        ; If the user is in the group
        If _inGroup("group" & $i, @UserName) Then
            ; Act accordingly
            Switch $i
                Case 1
                    _easyMap("M:", "\\Location\Primedia")
                    _easyMap("X:", "\\Location\Course Management System 4.0")
                Case 2
                    _easyMap("S:", "\\Location\example1")
                Case 3
                    _easyMap("Z:", "\\Location\Example2")
            EndSwitch
        EndIf
    Next
EndFunc

Now you test the user against all groups.
