{if},{elseif},{else}

{if},{elseif},{else}

{if} statements in Smarty have much the same flexibility as PHP if statements, with a few added features for the template engine. Every {if} must be paired with an {/if}. {else} and {elseif} are also permitted. All PHP conditionals and functions are recognized, such as ||, or, &&, and, is_array(), etc.

If $security is enabled then IF_FUNCS array in the $security_settings array.

The following is a list of recognized qualifiers, which must be separated from surrounding elements by spaces. Note that items listed in [brackets] are optional. PHP equivalents are shown where applicable.

Example 7-8. {if} statements

{if $name eq "Fred"}
    Welcome Sir.
{elseif $name eq "Wilma"}
    Welcome Ma'am.
{else}

{/if}

{* same as above *}
{if $name == "Fred" || $name == "Wilma"}
   ...
{/if}


{* parenthesis are allowed *}
{if ( $amount < 0 or $amount > 1000 ) and $volume >= #minVolAmt#}
   ...
{/if}


{* you can also embed php function calls *}
{if count($var) gt 0}
   ...
{/if}

{* check for array. *}
{if is_array($foo) }
   .....
{/if}

{* check for not null. *}
{if isset($foo) }

   ...
{/if}


{*
  test if var is even, grouped by two. i.e.,
  0=even, 1=even, 2=odd, 3=odd, 4=even, 5=even, etc.
*}
{if $var is even by 2}
   ...
{/if}

{* 0=even, 1=even, 2=even, 3=odd, 4=odd, 5=odd, etc. *}
