EIdException.IfFalse Method

Raises an instance of the exception based on an expression value.

class procedure IfFalse(
    const ACheck: Boolean; 
    const AMsg: string = ''
);
Parameters 
Description 
ACheck 
Condition to check for a False value.
 
AMsg 
Exception message text to assign to the exception instance. 

IfFalse is a class procedure used to raise an instance of the exception class when the condition in ACheck returns a False value. As a class method, IfFalse can be called without creating a prior instance of the exception class. 

When the condition in ACheck contains False, IfFalse calls Toss with the value in AMsg to raise the exception class instance. 

Use IfTrue to raise an instance of the exception class when the condition in ACheck contains True.
