Coding Helpers – Add Else Statement
The Add Else Statement code provider performs the operation its name implies – it generates the ‘else’ statement of the current conditional statement. The ‘else’ statement is required when you want to execute a piece of code if a condition is not met. In other words, the ‘else’ is useful when an alternative case is required on the ‘if’ statement.
Apply the code provider on any ‘if’ statement:
This will add an additional conditional clause:
Now, if the boolean condition is false, the alternative else branch is executed. The code provider may save you a few keystrokes while entering the statement with curly braces in C# and navigate inside it. In Visual Basic, it will generate the corresponding If .. End If code.—– Products: CodeRush Pro Versions: 12.1 and up VS IDEs: 2008 and up Updated: Aug/15/2012 ID: C177
