IF-Conditions with multiple statements

Hello everyone,

I set multiple variables for the IF-Conditions but it doesn't work.

 

# ###  VAR
SET TageZweiAcht TO FormattedDateMonth = 'Februar'
SET TageDreiNull TO FormattedDateMonth = 'April' OR FormattedDateMonth = 'Juni' OR FormattedDateMonth = 'September' OR FormattedDateMonth = 'Oktober'
SET TageDreiEins TO FormattedDateMonth = 'Januar' OR FormattedDateMonth = 'März' OR FormattedDateMonth = 'Mai' OR FormattedDateMonth = 'Juli' OR FormattedDateMonth = 'August' OR FormattedDateMonth = 'Oktober' OR FormattedDateMonth = 'Dezember'


# ###  DATE
DateTime.Local DateTimeFormat: DateTime.DateTimeFormat.DateOnly CurrentDateTime=> CurrentDateTime
Text.FromCustomDateTime DateTime: ResultedDate CustomFormat: $'''MMMM''' Result=> FormattedDateMonth

# ###  IF-COONDITIONS
IF FormattedDateMonth = TageZweiAcht THEN
    Display.ShowMessage Message: FormattedDateMonth Icon: Display.Icon.None Buttons: Display.Buttons.OK DefaultButton: Display.DefaultButton.Button1 IsTopMost: False
END

IF FormattedDateMonth = TageDreiNull THEN
    Display.ShowMessage Message: FormattedDateMonth Icon: Display.Icon.None Buttons: Display.Buttons.OK DefaultButton: Display.DefaultButton.Button1 IsTopMost: False
END

IF FormattedDateMonth = TageDreiEins THEN
    Display.ShowMessage Message: FormattedDateMonth Icon: Display.Icon.None Buttons: Display.Buttons.OK DefaultButton: Display.DefaultButton.Button1 IsTopMost: False
END

 

Do I make a mistake at the variables?

How can I set multiple variables for IF 🤔

The correct syntax is

IF (FormattedDateMonth = 'Januar' OR FormattedDateMonth = 'März') = True THEN

But it would be easier to create a list with all the months and then use "contains" like

IF %ListVariable% contains %FormattedDateMonth%

@fraenKthank you for your support! 👍

 

It doesn't also work

 

IF FormattedDateMonth = (TageDreiEins = 'Januar' OR TageDreiEins = 'März' OR TageDreiEins = 'Mai' OR TageDreiEins = 'Juli' OR TageDreiEins = 'August' OR TageDreiEins = 'Oktober' OR TageDreiEins = 'Dezember') THEN
    Display.ShowMessage Message: $'''%FormattedDateMonth%

%TageDreiEins%''' Icon: Display.Icon.None Buttons: Display.Buttons.OK DefaultButton: Display.DefaultButton.Button1 IsTopMost: False
END

 

 

The variable "TageDreiEins" is false 🤔

@fraenK  best man! 😃

 

Here's my solution with a list contained all the month.

Maybe helps someone else

 

SET MonatDreiEins TO $'''Januar,  März, Mai, Juli, August, Oktober, Dezember'''
SET MonatDreiNull TO $'''April, Juni, September, November'''
SET MonatZweiAcht TO $'''Februar'''

DateTime.Local DateTimeFormat: DateTime.DateTimeFormat.DateOnly CurrentDateTime=> CurrentDateTime
DateTime.Add DateTime: CurrentDateTime TimeToAdd: 1 TimeUnit: DateTime.TimeUnit.Months ResultedDate=> ResultedDate

Text.FromCustomDateTime DateTime: ResultedDate CustomFormat: $'''yyyy.MM''' Result=> FormattedDateTime
Text.FromCustomDateTime DateTime: ResultedDate CustomFormat: $'''MMMM''' Result=> FormattedDateMonth

IF Contains(MonatDreiEins, FormattedDateMonth, False) THEN
    Display.ShowMessage Title: $'''!!!''' Message: 31 Icon: Display.Icon.None Buttons: Display.Buttons.OK DefaultButton: Display.DefaultButton.Button1 IsTopMost: False
ELSE IF MonatDreiNull = FormattedDateMonth THEN
    Display.ShowMessage Title: $'''!!!''' Message: 30 Icon: Display.Icon.None Buttons: Display.Buttons.OK DefaultButton: Display.DefaultButton.Button1 IsTopMost: False
ELSE
    Display.ShowMessage Title: $'''!!!''' Message: 28 Icon: Display.Icon.None Buttons: Display.Buttons.OK DefaultButton: Display.DefaultButton.Button1 IsTopMost: False
END
