Case call another case?

Recommended Posts

This should be possible by 'jumping' from Case to Case using a variable and ContinueCase - though it's absolutely not the best practice  :)
Please have a look at the ContinueCase page in the helpfile

Case 1
   ; Do something;
   $var = 1 
   ContinueCase    ; go to Case 2

   ; Do something else;
   $var = 2 
   ContinueCase  ; go to Case 2
Case 2
   If $var = 1 or $var = 2 Then ContinueCase   ; go to Case 3
   ; code Case 2
Case 3
   If $var = 2 Then ContinueCase   ; go to Case 4
   ; code Case 3

Case 4
   ; code Case 4

Case 5

You can do it this way:

Local $expr = Random(1, 5, 1)   ; store the expression used to select cases in a variable

For $expr = 1 To 5  ; just used to demonstrate how the Select would perform in all cases
ConsoleWrite("Testing expr = " & $expr & @LF)

Local $next = $expr     ; this stores the initial condition, then where we're going to "branch"
Switch $next
    Case 1
        ; Do something for case 1
        $next = 3
        ConsoleWrite("Case 1 entered: next = " & $next & @LF)
        ContinueCase    ; will call Case 3
    Case 2
        If $next = 3 Then ContinueCase
        ; Do something for case 2
        ConsoleWrite("Case 2 entered: next = " & $next & @LF)
    Case 3
        ; Do something for case 3
        ConsoleWrite("Case 3 entered: next = " & $next & @LF)
        If $expr = 1 Then
            $next = 4
            ConsoleWrite("Something else done after case 3: next = " & $next & @LF)
    Case 4
        ; Do something for case 4
        ConsoleWrite("Case 4 entered: next = " & $next & @LF)
    Case 5
        ; Do something for case 5
        ConsoleWrite("Case 5 entered: next = " & $next & @LF)


The For...Next is for test purpose.

Else define functions to process cases 3 and 4 and invoke them.

This would be my preferred solution too.
