arc:case

Version 20.0.7488


The arc:case keyword is used with the arc:select keyword. The arc:case keyword consists of a block of ArcScript that is executed if the value in arc:select matches the value in arc:case.

Parameters

  • value: The pattern or value to compare against the value specified in arc:select.
  • match: The type of matches to find to determine whether the case statement should be executed. The default value is “exact”, which requires an exact match of the value. Other supported types are “regex”, for regular expression matching, and “glob”, which supports a simple expression model similar to the one used in file-name patterns (e.g., *.txt). The .NET edition of the application uses the .NET Framework version of regular expression matching. The Java edition uses Java regular expression constructs.

Control Attributes

None

Examples

Display an icon based on the condition. The arc:case elements match “CompanyA” and “CompanyB” in the company_name attribute and if any occurrences are found take the action associated with that case.

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