calculation
Hello,
I don't know very much about actionscript. Just enough to get by. I'm trying to put together a small application. I want the user to enter information, weight, and the application to tell the user which product to order. If the weight is within 1 of 4 ranges, he will use product #1, 2, 3, or 4. How can I get the product number to be entered in a seperate box if the weight falls within a certain range? I've figured out how to make calculations, but not conditions. Any help would be appreciated.
thanks,

Code:
var x = /* user input */
if (x < 10) {
// bottom unbounded range x < 10
} else if (x < 15) {
// 10 <= x < 15
} else if (x < 20) {
// 15 <= x < 20
} else {
// top unbounded range x >= 20
}
If you want to test for the second range by itself, do so like this:
Code:
if (x >= 10 && x < 15) {
// 10 <= x < 15
}
If you want to test for the second OR 4th range, do so like this:
Code:
if ((x >= 10 && x < 15)  x >= 20) {
// 10 <= x < 15 or x >= 20
}
&& is "and".  is "or". They are called shortcircuit logic operators.
