Sass - if() Function


Advertisements

Description

Based on the condition, this built-in if() function returns only one result from two possible outcomes. The result of the function can be referred to the variable that may not be defined or to have further calculations.

Syntax

if( expression, value1, value2 )

Example

The following example demonstrates the use of if() function in the SCSS file −

if_function.html

<html>
   <head>
      <title>Control Directives & Expressions</title>
      <link rel = "stylesheet" type = "text/css" href = "style.css"/>
   </head>
   
   <body>
      <h2>Welcome to TutorialsPoint</h2>
   </body>
</html>

Next, create file style.scss.

style.scss

h2 {
   color: if( 1 + 1 == 2 , green , red);
}

You can tell SASS to watch the file and update the CSS whenever SASS file changes, by using the following command −

sass --watch C:\ruby\lib\sass\style.scss:style.css

Next, execute the above command; it will create the style.css file automatically with the following code −

style.css

h2 {
   color: green; 
}

Output
