JDBC Driver for REST

Build 20.0.7654

api:select

The api:select keyword is similar to a switch-case block in other programming languages and can be used to create complex conditional statements. The body of api:select can contain one or more api:case keywords and one api:default keyword.

The value in api:select is matched with those specified in api:case. The body of the api:case statement contains the keywords and statements to be executed if the value specified matches the value in the api:select keyword.

The body of the api:default statement will be executed only if none of the api:case statements result in a match. The api:default keyword has no parameters and can appear only once in an api:select.

Parameters

  • value: The value to compare with those specified in api:case statements.
  • attr: The attribute whose value is compared with values specified in api:case statements.

Control Attributes

None

Examples

Set the icon depending on the company name. The api:case elements match "CompanyA" and "CompanyB" in the company_name attribute, and, if any occurrences are found, take the action associated with that case.

<api:select value="[company_name]">
  <api:case value="CompanyA">
    <img src="http://www.companya.com/favicon.ico" />
  </api:case>
  <api:case value="CompanyB">
    <img src="http://www.companyb.com/favicon.ico" />
  </api:case>
  <api:default>
    <img src="http://www.myhosting.com/generic.ico"/>
  </api:default>
</api:select>
