• Hey all,

Firstly, my apologies if this question has been asked before, but my cursory forum search did not turn up what I am looking for.

I am trying to do one loop with multiple conditions, something like:

``````for(i = 0; i < array.size(); i ++){
if(param=1)  Create Object 1;
else if(param=2) Create Object 2;
else if(param=3) Create Object 3;
else if(param=4) Create Object 4;
else if(param=5) Create Object 5;
else if(param=6) Create Object 6;
else if(param=7) Create Object 7;
... so on.
}[/code:dpgskplu]

I tried doing a series of For loops, but that hangs my program since I have a large number of objects to loop through.

Ideas?``````
• I don't see a problem with it, this should work fine:

``````For "loop" from 0 to 100
Condition A - Do stuff
Condition B - Do stuff
Condition C - Do stuff
[/code:273ur41b]``````
• The for loop that is readily available in Construct Events does not support that though, at least not that I have found.

You either have:

``````for 0 :100{
if(condition)
if(condition)
if(condition)
if(condition)
if(condition)
actions
}[/code:31xnz5q1]

Which will execute all of the actions upon any one of the conditions being true, or you have:
[code:31xnz5q1]
for 0:100{
if(condition) action
for 0:100{
if(condition) action
for 0:100{
if(condition) action
for 0:100{
if(condition) action
...
}
}
}
}[/code:31xnz5q1]

Which logically should do what I need, but hangs.

Could I write a custom JS block to do exactly what I put above?  Yea, but I would like to avoid that as a first option.``````
• You're either failing to explain what you want or you can't see the obvious solution

You can have an action for each condition inside the loop

• I got the "Else" working now. I was layering the events incorrectly as subevents of the subevents. Thanks for your help.

Construct 2's logic is really weird if you're used to other languages but I have yet to find anything I can't do with a proper ordering of events and subevents. Seems like you already figured this one out though.
