[If: Conditional Expression]
[Else: Conditional Expression]
... Default ...


Optional Parameters
Conditional Expression The conditional expression to be evaluated. If True this portion of the conditional will be executed. Defaults to True if no conditional expression is specified.

Change Notes

The [Else] tag now accepts an optional conditional expression so that it functions in place of the deprecated [Else:If] tag. The [Else] tag behaves like the [Else] tag in earlier versions of Lasso if no conditional expression is specified.


To show a message if a field is empty:

Use the [If] ... [/If] container tag with an [Else] tag. The [If] tag contains a conditional expression to check whether the field value for First_Name contains any data. If it does then the field value is shown with a label, otherwise a message is displayed that the field does not contain data.

[If: (Field: 'First_Name') != ' ']
  <br>First Name: [Field: 'First_Name']
  <br>No First Name Specified.

<br>No First Name Specified.
