  • #1 ✎ 24 Crazyblob Beginner Programmer I'm just starting out! I'm still trying to grasp the basics. Programming Strength Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Minecraft Is Awesome! I love Minecraft! Express Yourself If I put a input in let's say [INPUT QWERTY$] , how do I make it where if you type a string or words in.. it'll go to a @loop, or do a command with THEN. Sorry, a bit newbie to this. Posted Edited by Crazyblob

  • #8 ✎ 24 Crazyblob Beginner Programmer I'm just starting out! I'm still trying to grasp the basics. Programming Strength Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Minecraft Is Awesome! I love Minecraft! Express Yourself I fixed the issue, thank you. It's weird tho because when I do the word or string inside the "" it goes to the ELSE instead of the THEN. Another question.. what if instead of only having a one string inside the "" meaning both "PASSWORD" And another string or word which will have its own loop. So PASSWORD will go to @loop and for example TYPEME will go to @loop2 and anything else will run END. Posted

    if password$=="PASSWORD" THEN @loop elseif password$=="TYPEME" then @loop2 elseif password$!="PASSWORD" and password$!="TYPEME" then end

Programming Strength First Day Joined on the very first day of SmileBASIC Source Website Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Nicer code: IF PASSWORD$=="PASSWORD" THEN GOTO @LOOP1 ELSEIF PASSWORD$=="TYPEME" THEN GOTO @LOOP2 ELSE END ENDIFMulti-line IF statements make your code look so much better. Posted
  • #11 ✎ 24 Crazyblob Beginner Programmer I'm just starting out! I'm still trying to grasp the basics. Programming Strength Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Minecraft Is Awesome! I love Minecraft! Express Yourself What's the endif for? I also noticed instead of one = There's two of them.. why is that? Thank you guys.. this is gonna sound dumb but what if I wanted to add even more of those input things like "PASSWORD" "TYPEME"? Once again thank you Posted

    What's the endif for?
    ENDIF is used when you want an IF that goes over multiple lines. These do the same thing: IF A THEN B IF A THEN B ENDIF The single line version doesn't need ENDIF because it knows it ends at the end of that line.
    I also noticed instead of one = There's two of them.. why is that?
    = and == have different meanings in many programming languages, including SmileBASIC. It's something that does tend to confuse new programmers. 'This means "set the variable A to B" A=B 'This means "are A and B equal?" A==B
    Thank you guys.. this is gonna sound dumb but what if I wanted to add even more of those input things like "PASSWORD" "TYPEME"?
    If you want different passwords to do different things: IF PASSWORD$=="PASSWORD" THEN 'Do something ELSEIF PASSWORD$=="TYPEME" THEN 'Do something else ELSE 'Incorrect password ENDIF If you want different passwords to do the same thing: IF PASSWORD$=="PASSWORD" || PASSWORD$=="TYPEME" THEN 'Do something ELSE 'Incorrect password ENDIF || means "or", so this is saying "if the password is PASSWORD or the password is TYPEME, then do this". There's also && for "and", if you want to check that multiple things are true.

I love Minecraft! Express Yourself What if I wanted it if I did the "password" and it'll take me to @loop but.. if a variable equals 1 instead of taking me to @loop I'll go to @loop2 ? I know.. I'm a newb, thank you Posted

I love Minecraft! Express Yourself I wanted it to be in the same IF actually... Also whats the "password" string for at the input? And the ;? I also noticed at the second part of the variable thing, you put the ! . Why is that? Thank you. I'm sorry, just a bit new to coding but I do appreciate the help you've given me Posted

    The built-in manual might be bad, but it does exist. http://smilebasic.com/en/reference/ >INPUT ["Guiding text string";] Variable The square brackets indicate an optional parameter. In this case, text to use to prompt the user. The semicolon separates the arguments, here... ! is the logical NOT operator. !TRUE is FALSE and !FALSE is TRUE Shelly meant to write !=, the "not equal to" or inequality comparison. Also, be careful with AND. AND is a bitwise intersection test, which is functionally equivalent to a logical and, &&, only in the case of booleans (that is, TRUE/FALSE/1/0). It doesn't matter too much yet, but just remember to use && when checking that two conditions are met. INPUT PASSWORD$ IF VARIABLE == 1 THEN GOTO @LOOP2 ELSEIF PASSWORD$ == "PASSWORD" THEN GOTO @LOOP ELSE GOTO @SOMETHINGELSE ENDIF
