switch

Switch view helper which can be used to render content depending on a value or expression. Implements what a basic switch()-PHP-method does.

An optional default case can be specified which is rendered if none of the "f:case" conditions matches.

= Examples =

<code title="Simple Switch statement"> <f:switch expression="{person.gender}">

<f:case value="male">Mr.</f:case> <f:case value="female">Mrs.</f:case> <f:defaultCase>Mr. / Mrs.</f:defaultCase>

</f:switch> </code> <output> "Mr.", "Mrs." or "Mr. / Mrs." (depending on the value of {person.gender}) </output>

Note: Using this view helper can be a sign of weak architecture. If you end up using it extensively you might want to consider restructuring your controllers/actions and/or use partials and sections. E.g. the above example could be achieved with <f:render partial="title.{person.gender}" /> and the partials "title.male.html", "title.female.html", ... Depending on the scenario this can be easier to extend and possibly contains less duplication.
