If Statements

Interprets commands conditionally. Every if statement starts with $if[condition] and has to end with $endif. $else is optional.

Breakdown

  • Use $if[] to specify a block of code to be executed, if a specified condition is true.
  • Use $else to specify a block of code to be executed, if the same condition is false.
  • Use $elseif[] to specify a new condition to check, if the first condition is false (can be only used in BDScript 2)
  • Use $else and $if[] to specify a new condition to check, if the first condition is false.
  • Use $endif to end a if statement.

Examples:

$if[$username==kubastick]
  Hi Kuba!
$else
  Hi $username!
$endif
$if[$getUserVar[money]>0]
  You're not broke
$endif
$if[$username==noituri]
  $if[$message[<]==nice]
    Noit said nice
  $endif
$endif

Only for BDScript 2:

$if[$message==test]
  You said test
$elseif[$message==BDFD]
  Bot Designer for Discord
$elseif[$username==noituri]
  Hi Noituri!
$else
  I don't know what to say
$endif

Note: You can use multiple $elseifs

Explaination

$if[] uses the format of: if x is related accordingly (based on the "sign") with y then the code below runs.

Signs

== - Equal

!= - Not Equal

< - Less Than

> - Greater Than

>= - Greater Than Or Equal To

<= - Less Than Or Equal To

  • These signs could vary in meaning based on the order or intent of the if statement.
  • If you are using text as your x and/or y, you can not use any other signs besides == and !=. However for numbers, you can use any sign shown in the above list.

Base Usage

$if[valuex(sign)valuey]

Else If

$elseif can be only used in BDScript 2. If you use different BDScript edition please read the note below.

Note: Normal BDScript and BDScript Unstable don't have a specific function for else if blocks, but you can still do them by using $else and $if[]. The difference between $else and $else/$if[] is that else doesn't need a condition. Where as else if is still an if so it needs a condition. The main purpose for else if is to make it so only one if statement runs. Unlike regular if statements, the else if blocks should end with $else then start with another $if[]. Once you are done with your else if statements, close all of them with x number of $endifs (x = number of else if statements) at the bottom of the last else if statement.

Example Else If for Normal BDScript and BDScript Unstable

$if[$checkContains[$message;hi]==true]
Hello

$else
$if[$checkContains[$message;yes]==true]
Sure!

$endif
$endif
