It is always legal in Lua programming to nest if-else statements, which means you can use one if or else if statement inside another if or else if statement(s).
The syntax for a nested if statement is as follows −
if( boolean_expression 1) then --[ Executes when the boolean expression 1 is true --] if(boolean_expression 2) then --[ Executes when the boolean expression 2 is true --] end end
You can nest else if...else in the similar way as you have nested if statement.
--[ local variable definition --] a = 100; b = 200; --[ check the boolean condition --] if( a == 100 ) then --[ if condition is true then check the following --] if( b == 200 ) then --[ if condition is true then print the following --] print("Value of a is 100 and b is 200" ); end end print("Exact value of a is :", a ); print("Exact value of b is :", b );
When you build and run the above code, it produces the following result.
Value of a is 100 and b is 200 Exact value of a is : 100 Exact value of b is : 200
