Looping statements are used to run the same block of code a specified number of times.
In VBScript we have four looping statements:
Use the For...Next statement to run a block of code a specified number of times.
The For statement specifies the counter variable (i), and its start and end values. The Next statement increases the counter variable (i) by one.
The Step Keyword
With the Step keyword, you can increase or decrease the counter variable by the value you specify.
In the example below, the counter variable (i) is INCREASED by two, each time the loop repeats.
To decrease the counter variable, you must use a negative Step value. You must specify an end value that is less than the start value.
In the example below, the counter variable (i) is DECREASED by two, each time the loop repeats.
Exit a For...Next
You can exit a For...Next statement with the Exit For keyword.
For Each...Next Loop
A For Each...Next loop repeats a block of code for each item in a collection, or for each element of an array.
If you don't know how many repetitions you want, use a Do...Loop statement.
The Do...Loop statement repeats a block of code while a condition is true, or until a condition becomes true.
Repeat Code While a Condition is True
You use the While keyword to check a condition in a Do...Loop statement.
If i equals 9, the code inside the loop above will never be executed.
The code inside this loop will be executed at least one time, even if i is less than 10.
Repeat Code Until a Condition Becomes True
You use the Until keyword to check a condition in a Do...Loop statement.
If i equals 10, the code inside the loop will never be executed.
The code inside this loop will be executed at least one time, even if i is equal to 10.
Exit a Do...Loop
You can exit a Do...Loop statement with the Exit Do keyword.
The code inside this loop will be executed as long as i is different from 10, and as long as i is greater than 10.
