    If Else Statement

    Dear Dynamo Experts,

    I have a simple question on if statement. How to implement something like if true do A things, else do B things in dynamo? I mean like if true go to this node else go to that node.

    I actually have problem something like this:

    if true i want A list else B list.

    I've had issues with if logic in the code block, so I usually use the "Formula" node. In it you can use syntax like you would in Revit - if(a, b, c)

        Hello jmk,

        The inherent logic behind 'if statements' in Dynamo is a little out of whack - there is a reason for it (And I did get told once) that makes sense, but it doesn't comply with how if logic in Revit works.

        To achieve such, use the following node from the Zebra package by my colleague Mark Thorley.
