CASE statement and CONTAINS - Macromedia Director Lingo

Hello, Is it possible to add a 'contains' clause to the 'case' command? I know I can do this: case variableName OF "foo": doThis() end case But I'm trying to do this: case variableName CONTAINS "foo": doThis() end case which does not work... Is there a way to make this work, without having to do an 'IF/THEN' command? Steve...

    Default CASE statement and CONTAINS

    Hello,

    Is it possible to add a 'contains' clause to the 'case' command? I know I
    can do this:

    case variableName OF
    "foo":
    doThis()
    end case

    But I'm trying to do this:

    case variableName CONTAINS
    "foo":
    doThis()
    end case

    which does not work...

    Is there a way to make this work, without having to do an 'IF/THEN' command?
    Steve

    Lingo lets you reverse the clauses, like so:

    case true of
    variableName contains "foo":
    doThis()
    variableName contains "bar":
    doThat()
    end case
