if

(PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7)

if 结构是很多语言包括 PHP 在内最重要的特性之一,它允许按照条件执行代码片段。PHP 的 if 结构和 C 语言相似:

<?php
if (expr)
  statement
?>

如同在表达式一章中定义的,expr 按照布尔求值。如果 expr 的值为 TRUE,PHP 将执行 statement,如果值为 FALSE ——将忽略 statement。有关哪些值被视为 FALSE 的更多信息参见转换为布尔值一节。

如果 $a 大于 $b,则以下例子将显示 a is bigger than b

<?php
if ($a $b)
  echo 
"a is bigger than b";
?>

经常需要按照条件执行不止一条语句,当然并不需要给每条语句都加上一个 if 子句。可以将这些语句放入语句组中。例如,如果 $a 大于 $b,以下代码将显示 a is bigger than b 并且将 $a 的值赋给 $b

<?php
if ($a $b) {
  echo 
"a is bigger than b";
  
$b $a;
}
?>

if 语句可以无限层地嵌套在其它 if 语句中,这给程序的不同部分的条件执行提供了充分的弹性。

An other way for controls is the ternary operator (see Comparison Operators) that can be used as follows:

<?php
$v
= 1;

$r = (1 == $v) ? 'Yes' : 'No'; // $r is set to 'Yes'
$r = (3 == $v) ? 'Yes' : 'No'; // $r is set to 'No'

echo (1 == $v) ? 'Yes' : 'No'; // 'Yes' will be printed

// and since PHP 5.3
$v = 'My Value';
$r = ($v) ?: 'No Value'; // $r is set to 'My Value' because $v is evaluated to TRUE

$v = '';
echo (
$v) ?: 'No Value'; // 'No Value' will be printed because $v is evaluated to FALSE
?>

Parentheses can be left out in all examples above.

You can have 'nested' if statements withing a single if statement, using additional parenthesis.
For example, instead of having:

<?php
if( $a == 1 || $a == 2 ) {
    if(
$b == 3 || $b == 4 ) {
        if(
$c == 5 || $ d == 6 ) {
            
//Do something here.
       
}
    }
}
?>

You could just simply do this:

<?php
if( ($a==1 || $a==2) && ($b==3 || $b==4) && ($c==5 || $c==6) ) {
   
//do that something here.
}
?>

Hope this helps!

re: #80305

Again useful for newbies:

if you need to compare a variable with a value, instead of doing

<?php
if ($foo == 3) bar();
?>

do

<?php
if (3 == $foo) bar();
?>

this way, if you forget a =, it will become

<?php
if (3 = $foo) bar();
?>

and PHP will report an error.

In addition to the traditional syntax for if (condition) action;
I am fond of the ternary operator that does the same thing, but with fewer words and code to type:

(condition ? action_if_true: action_if_false;)

example

(x > y? 'Passed the test' : 'Failed the test')

Any variables defined inside the if block will be available outside the block. Remember that the if doesn't have its own scope.

<?php
$bool
= true;
if (
$bool) {
   
$hi = 'Hello to all people!';
}
echo
$hi;
?>

It will print 'Hello to all people!'

On the other hand, this will have no output:

<?php
if (false) {
   
$hi = 'Hello to all people!';
}
echo
$hi;
?>

You can use this syntax :

if (condition):

     // your code

else if:

  // your code

else:
  // Your code

endif ;

//to use if condition and html together

<?php if(condition) : ?>

// just html code

<?php  elseif( condition ): ?>

// just html code

<?php  else: ?>
// just html code
<?php endif?>
