# Testing the Values of multiple NumericUpDowns

• ### Question

• hi so in a button i had the following block of code
```            if (bool1 = 0)
{
if (bool2 = 0)
{

if (bool3 = 0)
{
}
else
{
MessageBox.Show("Thank you for placing your bets");
}
}
else
{
MessageBox.Show("Thank you for placing your bets");
}

}
else
{
MessageBox.Show("Thank you for placing your bets");
}```
and so it would test the values of a total of 3 numericUpDowns, i want it so that when at least one of the values is greater than zero then it will say "Thank you for placing your bets". What is happening right now is that it is only saying "Thank you for placing your bets", if the first numericUpDown is greater than 1, if the other two are checked and the first one isn't, then it will say "Please place a bet"

• Greetings Frozen_Nova.

You are using the assignment operator (a single equals sign) where you should be using the equality operator (a double equals sign).

`if (bool1 == 0) // Use == instead of =. And same for the other two, obviously.`

• You are repeating yourself unnecessarily.  Just say

if( (bool1 == 0) && (bool2 == 0) && (bool3 == 0) )
MessageBox.Show( "Please place a bet." );
else
MessageBox.Show( "Thank you for placing your bets." );
