If ([Condition])
Else If ([Condition]) - Optional
     [Actions] - Optional
Else - Optional
     [Actions] - Optional
End If

Condition - what has to be true before the actions are excuted.
Actions - commands executed if the condition is met.

Example uses:
Anywhere you need to perform an action which depends on a condition being met

The If statement if very important as it has the ability to decide on courses of action. At is simplest it will perform an action if something is true. For example. If the sun is on then make the sky blue (See basic example). Alternatively you can make it the if statement perform an action if the sun is not on (See intermediate example). In the last example (Advanced), you will see the Else If statement used. This allow for a second (third, forth etc.) condition to be tested and the appropriate actions to be executed.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
