Switch case in python 3

Hello,

How to make a switch case in python 3 that works with Grist?

Python doesn’t have ‘switch’ but it does have match/case statements, which are slightly different from switch in other programming languages.

However, these are a very new feature that only came out in Python 3.10, the latest stable version. Grist currently uses Python 3.9 (or 2.7 for old documents) so it doesn’t have match/case.

This means that you have to use plain if/elif/else. If you’re having trouble getting a formula to do what you want, we’re here to help.

Hello,

I had tried the match/case by looking at the Python documentation, but it didn’t work.
Now I understand: Grist incorporates version 3.9 and not 3.10.

Thank you for this remark.
