OPERATOR:  conditional:  ? : ;

  ? : ;  
 
The conditional operator is used to assign one of two possible values to an expression based upon the results from a boolean test applied to a specified operand.
 
The conditional operator is used in the following format:
 
expression = operand1 ? operand2 : operand3;
 
This operator behaves as follows:
  • A boolean (true or false) test is performed on operand1.
  • If the test proves true, the expression is assigned the value of operand2.
  • If the test proves false or invalid, the expression is assigned the value of operand3.
