C# Programming/Keywords/switch


The switch statement is a control statement that handles multiple selections and enumerations by passing control to one of the case statements within its body.

This is an example of a switch statement:

int currentAge = 18;
 
switch currentAge
{
case 16:
    Console.WriteLine("You can drive!")
    break;
case 18:
    Console.WriteLine("You're finally an adult!");
    break;
default:
    Console.WriteLine("Nothing exciting happened this year.");
    break;
}
Console Output
You're finally an adult!
