Calculator code having trouble

Students created calculator code.

I was trying to make a calculator app in the App Lab when I tried using switch statements. When a switch statement is used the first time in an app, it will use the correct case. When a switch statement is used after the first time in an app, it will use the first case and not the correct one, even if it is a different data type. I have observed this in multiple different Apps and with multiple different variables and data types. I am running Chrome 79.0.3945.130 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Home 64-bit.


Switch-case statements have never worked well for me. Unfortunately there is likely nothing wrong with the code, just rather something wrong with itself. It’s best just using if statements instead as they are more well-supported.

@auvaulter89 Switch statements are not part of the App Lab toolbox. However, they should work because they are native to javascript. There has been a bug noted in the system that the engineers are aware of. I have attached a link here to the thread were this was outlined and discussed. Please also open a ticket at
