Conditional Statements in PHP

No programming language in complete without having the provision to write conditional statements. The core essence of conditional statements in PHP is very much the same as in other programming languages.

Conditional statements allow us to take different actions based on different conditions. These conditions help us to take a decision on the course of action to be taken. We will check out the related code snippets soon.

Following conditional statements are supported in PHP:


  1. if statement
  2. if else statement
  3. if elseif else statement
  4. switch statement

Assuming that you have already worked on the concept of conditional statements (may be in some other programming language), let’s quickly jump over to the code snippet for each type of conditional statements.
