Help with conditional effect controls

don't use double quotes around the effect name 
 if (EFFECT_OFF TERC)

Nevermind.  I figured it out.  I still cant find the predefined “EFFECT_ON” variable in the pull-down list, but I made my own, called SPX _ ON and TERC_ON, and called them with:

if (!$TERC-ON){
//commands
}

and all is OK now.

Hi All;  I'm trying to setup an effect switch with an if...else condition check.  First, if I type "if", the following pick list does not include the pre-defined "EFFECT_ON" or "EFFECT_OFF" variables, so I type them in manually, but there's a parsing error.  I'm not a programmer, but I do understand opening and closing blocks.  Here's what I want to do:  Because of the way I have the effects wired in my GCX, I need the EFFECT_ON to enable loop 5, but then check whether another effect is already on, and if it isn't, then also enable loops 7 and 8.  If it is, then only enable loop 5.  Here's what I wrote:

EFFECT_ON SPX =
{
   SendMidi GCX CtrlChange 5 127
   if (EFFECT_OFF "TERC")
   {
      SendMidi GCX CtrlChange 7 127
      SendMidi GCX CtrlChange 8 127
   }
   else
   {
      
   }
}

The error I get is "Error parsing the programming code on line 103: specify at least 1 command for SPX."


Second, how to you define a Boolean variable?  And can it be done in the FCB_Init block?  I wrote:

VAR $terc_on = false

but got the red x.
