    Question multiple cases

    How would I check for multiple values in a switch case? This is for a function that increments to the next frame of an animation, it takes in two variables: the current frame (Position) and whether this is a left foot forward or right foot forward step (Footing). I've listed the code for what I'm trying to do:

    switch (Position)
    {
    case 0:
    if (Footing==0)
    {
    return 1;
    }
    else if (Footing==1)
    {
    return 6;
    }
    break;
    case >=1 && <=4 //this is where I'm not sure of the syntax
    if (Footing==0)
    {
    return Position + 1;
    }
    else if (Footing==1)
    {
    return Position - 1;
    }
    break;
    }

    In the case that Position is 1 to 4, I check the current step and then increment or decrement accordingly. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

    No you can't do that

    Just list them all as
    case 1:
    case 2:
    case 3:
    case 4:
    // case 1 to 4 code here
    break;

    Exclamation Thanks

    Thanks a ton, Salem. I'm making the transition from VB to C/C++ so I keep getting stuck where I know what I want to logically but I don't know the proper C/C++ syntax. Thanks again.
