In this intermediate-level project you will examine the need to make decisions in programming. Using the Notepad++ editor and JavaScript embedded in HTML, you will write the JavaScript code to test a condition and then take an action based on the test result. While the If-Else/Else-If logic in this project could apply to a number of programming languages, the syntax you’ll use is specific to JavaScript. Decision programming is a necessary addition to the tool set for any programmer or application developer. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

  1. Explore examples of business problems where decision programming is required to produce the correct solution.

  2. Write JavaScript code to test a condition and provide an action if the condition is true.

  3. Write JavaScript code to test a condition, providing an action if it is true, and a different action if it is false.

  4. Incorporate the Else-IF construct in JavaScript code to provide actions in cases where there are more than two options.

  5. Write the JavaScript code to use an Else-If construct that can test more than one condition in the conditional statement.
