Logical OR results in a true if either of the two operands is true.

Example Code

This operator can be used inside the condition of an if statement.

if (x > 0 || y > 0) { // if either x or y is greater than zero // statements }


Do not confuse the boolean || (double pipe) operator with the bitwise OR operator | (single pipe).
