Javascript Question

Nested switch statement in javascript

Is it possible to use nested

switch
statement in javascript.

My code is some what look like

switch(id1)
{
case 1:
switch(id2){
case 1:{
switch(id3){
case 1:{}
case 2:{}
}
}
case 2:{
switch(id4){
case 1:{}
case 2:{}
}
}
}
case 2:
}


If yes then it is a good practice to do or we can use any alternate approach.

Answer

Your approach is absolutely fine.

You can make the switch nesting less complex by using switch (true):

switch (true) {
case ((id1 === 1) && (id2 === 1) && (id3 === 1)) :
case ((id1 === 1) && (id2 === 1) && (id3 === 2)) :
case ((id1 === 1) && (id2 === 2) && (id3 === 1)) :
case ((id1 === 1) && (id2 === 2) && (id3 === 2)) :
case ((id1 === 2) && (id2 === 1) && (id3 === 1)) :
case ((id1 === 2) && (id2 === 1) && (id3 === 2)) :
case ((id1 === 2) && (id2 === 2) && (id3 === 1)) :
case ((id1 === 2) && (id2 === 2) && (id3 === 2)) :
}
