VB 6 – Switch Function

The Switch() function works similar to If-Then-Else construct, but in a different way. The function checks few conditions and if one of the condition is passed, then the statement corresponding to that condition is evaluated or displayed.

Syntax: Switch Function

The syntax of the Switch() function is given below.

Variable = Switch(condition 1, Value 1, condition 2 , Value 2,..., condition n, Value n)

The switch statement goes through each condition and whichever evaluate to true, the value part is returned and assigned to a variable on left hand side.

Example Program: Switch Function

In this example, we are going to accept an input number, then check the number if it is greater than or equal to 100 or less than 100 and display the result.

Private Sub Command1_Click()

Dim number As Integer, Result As String

number = InputBox("Enter a Number")

Result = Switch(number < 100, "Number is Less than 100", number >= 100, "Number is Greater than Equal to 100")

MsgBox (Result)

End Sub
