    Hi Guys This is Ayesha It has been long time that I'm working on a project of arduino and I have searched my question here and there but couldn’t find it. Well let me explain the issue I'm getting with my arduino switch and its timing.

    I believe the arduino that I got from an online electronic store as i think it's SWITCH statement has some compile time problems.

    If I try to declare a boolean variable in a CASE statement as illustrated in "case 2: in the snippet below, the compiler throws an error.

    I add this to the other CASE statement problem I flagged earlier: ie. the compiler does not throw an error if you misspell "default" as "defalut.")


    switch (var) {
    case 1:
    //do something when var equals 1
    case 2:
    boolean X;
    //do something when var equals 2
    // if nothing else matches, do the default
    // default is optional
    [mod edit: put code into a code box for improved readability]
    This appears to be a problem with the compiler, NOT my code, and it seems to happen only with nested SWITCH statements.

    Thank in advance for your prompt response.
