    trying to end a multi else if block...

    trying to end an a multiple elseif block

    i coded this elseif block according to the recommendations on php.net. but the last else: with the colon is generating an error.

    then, if i leave off the colon the following { throws an error.

    so i then tried making the last else an elseif but then endif; throws an error. very frustrating.

    i did try making this a case statement but then the booleans weren't working as expected

    PHP Code:
    if(($manIdAdd != 0) && (!isValidURL($urlAdd))) {
            echo 
    'Id is good but URL is bad, add to error array';
        }
        elseif((
    $manIdAdd == 0) && (isValidURL($urlAdd))) {
            echo 
    'URL is good but ID is bad, add to error array';
        }
        elseif((
    $manIdAdd != 0) && (isValidURL($urlAdd))) {
            echo 
    'Both are good';
            echo 
    'Run Q';
        }
        elseif((
    $manIdAdd == 0) && (!isValidURL($urlAdd))) {
            echo 
    'Both are bad which means user didn\'t intend to add so exit';
        }
        endif;

    Just replace the endif with an empty else { }, endif is improper syntax

    Code:
    if(($manIdAdd != 0) && (!isValidURL($urlAdd))) {
            echo 'Id is good but URL is bad, add to error array';
        }
        elseif(($manIdAdd == 0) && (isValidURL($urlAdd))) {
            echo 'URL is good but ID is bad, add to error array';
        }
        elseif(($manIdAdd != 0) && (isValidURL($urlAdd))) {
            echo 'Both are good';
            echo 'Run Q';
        }
        elseif(($manIdAdd == 0) && (!isValidURL($urlAdd))) {
            echo 'Both are bad which means user didn\'t intend to add so exit';
        }
        else { }

    will do, thank you.

    this is from php.net though is obviously not correct

    PHP Code:
    /* Correct Method: */
    if($a $b):
        echo 
    $a." is greater than ".$b;
    elseif(
    $a == $b): // Note the combination of the words.
        
    echo $a." equals ".$b;
    else:
        echo 
    $a." is neither greater than or equal to ".$b;
    endif;

    ?>

    There are two different PHP conditional syntaxes, one using the more common curly braces approach and the other using the colon and "endif" technique -- but you cannot mix the two together.

    Also, you don't need an else{} -- any other valid statement following the closing brace of the last elseif would also terminate the chain.
