    I know it's not really a big issue, but when using Build Configurations B4X developers do the following.
    Example using 3 lines:
    #If Developer
                Log($"3 lines into 1 = "${MakeItSo}$)
                Log($"5 lines into 1 = "${MakeItSo}$)        
    #End If
    It would be nice if we could just have the above work with one line just like the normal If > Then > Else condition.
    Like this example using 1 line:
    #If Developer Then Log($"3 lines into 1 = "${MakeItSo}$) Else Log($"5 lines into 1 = "${MakeItSo}$)
    Just like the standard conditions in the B4X suite of tools.

    Thank you...

    very helpful :)
    By the way, I did not know "if developer" until now. :(

    If setup 2 conditions, Developer and Release, I use developer to view logs, to bypass the licensing library, to ignore warnings like file not used etc.

    But I wish it was more like the standard if else, that way we can either use 3 into 1 line or better still 5 into 1 line of code.

    While the syntax is indeed nice it is more complicated to implement then it might seem. The parser must build the document structure in a very efficient way. Many optimizations can be done based on the assumptions that subs and conditional symbols start on a new line.
