Control Structures in Visual Basic 6.0

Control Statements are used to control the flow of program's execution. Visual Basic supports control structures such as if... Then, if...Then ...Else, Select...Case, and Loop structures such as Do While...Loop, While...Wend, For...Next etc method.

If...Then selection structure

The If...Then selection structure performs an indicated action only when the condition is True; otherwise the action is skipped.

Syntax of the If...Then selection

If <condition> Then
End If

e.g.: If average>75 Then
txtGrade.Text = "A"
End If

If...Then...Else selection structure

The If...Then...Else selection structure allows the programmer to specify that a different action is to be performed when the condition is True than when the condition is False.

Syntax of the If...Then...Else selection

If <condition > Then
End If

e.g.: If average>50 Then
txtGrade.Text = "Pass"
txtGrade.Text = "Fail"
End If

Nested If...Then...Else selection structure

Nested If...Then...Else selection structures test for multiple cases by placing If...Then...Else selection structures inside If...Then...Else structures.

Syntax of the Nested If...Then...Else selection structure

You can use Nested If either of the methods as shown above

Method 1

If < condition 1 > Then
ElseIf < condition 2 > Then
ElseIf < condition 3 > Then
End If

Method 2

If < condition 1 > Then
If < condition 2 > Then
If < condition 3 > Then
End If
End If

e.g.: Assume you have to find the grade using nested if and display in a text box

If average > 75 Then
txtGrade.Text = "A"
ElseIf average > 65 Then
txtGrade.Text = "B"
ElseIf average > 55 Then
txtGrade.text = "C"
ElseIf average > 45 Then
txtGrade.Text = "S"
txtGrade.Text = "F"
End If

Select...Case selection structure

Select...Case structure is an alternative to If...Then...ElseIf for selectively executing a single block of statements from among multiple block of statements. is more convenient to use than the If...Else...End If. The following program block illustrate the working of Select...Case.

Syntax of the Select...Case selection structure

Select Case Index
Case 0
Case 1
End Select

e.g.: Assume you have to find the grade using and display in the text box

Dim average as Integer

average = txtAverage.Text
Select Case average
Case 100 To 75
txtGrade.Text ="A"
Case 74 To 65
txtGrade.Text ="B"
Case 64 To 55
txtGrade.Text ="C"
Case 54 To 45
txtGrade.Text ="S"
Case 44 To 0
txtGrade.Text ="F"
Case Else
MsgBox "Invalid average marks"
End Select

Note: In this example I have used a message box function. In later lessons you will learn how to use message box functions.
