## IF Statement according to user input

Hi,

I am trying to create a basic script with an IF statement, I'm not that familiar if a CASE statement exist in JMP but what I'm try to do is similar to a case statement.

1. Ask the user to input a number ranging from 1-20 only

2. Create an if statement and execute the command with accordance to the user input

For example: User input : 2

*Executes script inside bracket 2

Can you advise a basic tutorial set that might help with this?

## Re: IF Statement according to user input

You can try something like this

``````userinput = New Window( "Collect user input",	<<Modal, <<Return Result,
V List Box(
H List Box(
Text Box("Input a number from 1 to 20: "),
number = Text Edit box("")
),
Spacer Box(Size(10, 10)),
H List Box( Spacer Box( 10, 80 ), Button Box( "OK" ), Button Box( "Cancel" ) ),
)
);

If( userinput["Button"] == -1,
db << close
);

number_input = userinput["number"];
if(num(number_input) < 1 | num(number_input) > 20,
New Window("Error!!", Text Box("  Please input a number from 1 to 20 ONLY!  ")),
if(num(number_input) == 1,
//DO SOMETHING...
num(number_input) == 2,
//DO SOMETHING...
);
);``````

## Re: IF Statement according to user input

You can be a more direct with your user interface.  Try this code:

``````
nw = new window("Test",
panel box("Click the icon to run the program: ",
lineup box(ncol(2),
text box("1. Tree Map"),
button box("", << set icon("TreeMap"),
<< set function(include("treemap.jsl"))),

text box("2. Neural Net"),
button box("", << set icon("NeuralNet"),
<< set function(include("NeuralNet.jsl"))),

text box("3. Model Comparison"),
button box("", << set icon("ModelComparison"),
<< set function(include("ModelComparison.jsl"))),

text box("4. SAS Pyramid"),
button box("", << set icon("SASPyramid"),
<< set function(include("SASPyramid.jsl"))),
),
),
);``````

You would substitute the appropriate code where I have <include("xxx.jsl")>.  To get the various icons use Justin Chilton's Built in JMP Icons addin.
