#if

The #if directive controls conditional compilation of the resource file by checking the specified constant expression. If the constant expression is nonzero, #if directs the compiler to continue processing statements up to the next #endif, #else, or #elif directive and then skip to the statement after the #endif directive. If the constant expression is zero, #if directs the compiler to skip to the next #endif, #else, or #elif directive.
