Conquer inner fear, push it to the limit!

read between the line

It was last Friday when I tried to implement a UI for contractor register. Let see the code shall we?

if (!contractorTypeSelected)
    Flash["error"] = "Please select a contractor type";

Without knowing much detail it read like this “If the contractor’s type is not selected, flash an error and go back to step one otherwise take me to the next step“. It sounds pretty trivial right? well easy enough except it always take me to the next step no matter how bad the contractor’s type condition was ????!!!!!!

Now tell me what have I done wrong?

  1. Shouldn’t there be an ‘else’ between line 05 and 06?
