Usage

If the value of the expression in this tag is yes, and the values of the expressions in the containing cfif tag and preceding cfelseif tags are no, ColdFusion processes the code between this tag and a following cfelseif or cfelse tag, or the cfif end tag and then skips to the code following the cfif end tag. Otherwise, ColdFusion skips the code.
This tag must be inside a cfif tag block. It does not require an end tag. For more information and an example, see cfif.

Example

 

<cfset value = 10> 
<cfif value GT 20> 
    <cfoutput>Greater than 10</cfoutput> 
<cfelseif value EQ 8> 
    <cfoutput>Equal to 8</cfoutput> 
<cfelse> 
    <cfoutput>#value#</cfoutput> 
</cfif>

Output

10

Script example

 

<cfscript>
    value=10
    if (value > 10){
        writeOutput("Value is greater than 10")
    }
    else if(value < 10){
        writeOutput("Value is less than 10")
    }
    else {
        writeOutput("Value is 10")
    }
</cfscript>

Output

Value is 10
