The content of the cx:if element is being evaluated depeninding the condition, like:
<cx:if condition="activity.toEmployee.age < 18">
... This candidate is a minor ...
<cx:if not="1" condition="activity.toEmployee.lastname like 'peter*'">
The last name of this candidate does not start with 'peter'.
If - Else
The if-then-else construction (a well known programming construct) is obtained by using a cx:if element followed by a cx:elseelement, as follows:
<cx:if condition="x >= 0">
... x is greater than or equal to 0 ...
... x is not greater than or equal to 0 ...
The cx:else always belongs to the last preceding cx:if.
- Note that in a condition variable names are not preceded by the dollar sign $.
- The most correct value for the not attribute is $YES. However, this feels strange.
Therefor use the following notation: not="". The result is the same.
- Within a cx:if or cx:else element other cx:if of cx:else elements can be nested.
