      Case Command?

      Post

      I was looking at a web page ( http://campsoftware.com/products/fmsnippets/ ) that provides a way to create FM scripts without having to go through the FM Script Editor.  FMSnippets used with TextExpander allows one to code in a text editor and enter commands with abbreviations.

      For Example

      typing ‘fmifs’, the abbreviation for ‘fm if short’, will expand to:

      If ( test ; resultOne ; resultTwo )

      typing ‘fmifl’, the abbreviation for ‘fm if long’, will expand to:

      If (test ;

      resultOne ;

      resultTwo

      )

      typing ‘fmcase’, the abbreviation for ‘fm case’, will expand to:

      Case (

      test1 ; result1 ;

      test2 ; result2 ;

      defaultResult

      )

      I was surprised to see a Case structure presented.

      Does FMP allow a Case structure?  I don't see one listed in the script menu or reference, but it is easier to use and read than nested If or If and Else If.
