            /* ............... START ............... */
fun main(args: Array<String>) {

    var number = 2

    val result = if (number > 0)
        "positive number"
    else if (number < 0)
        "negative number"

    println("Result is :  $result")

    number = 0

    val result1 = if (number > 0)
        "positive number"
    else if (number < 0)
        "negative number"

    println("Result is :  $result1")
                /* ............... END ............... */


Result is :  positive number
Result is :  zero


  • If else if statment in kotlin makes a ladder of conditions, if one statement finds true it will exit from the if else if ladder.
  • In the above program you can see the if else if ladder with three conditions. If number > 0 it will take positive number as the return value, else if it will take the negative value.
  • If all condition is not satisfied it will take last else part.
