"For ... Next" Statement Example Examples
This section provides a tutorial example on how to use 'For ... Next' statements to repeat a block of statements.
To help you understand how "For ... Next" statements work, I wrote the following the example, loop_for.html:
- Copyright (c) 2015, HerongYang.com, All Rights Reserved.
For i = 3 To 30 Step 2
bIsPrime = True
For j = 2 To i\2
bIsPrime = i Mod j > 0
If Not bIsPrime Then Exit For
If bIsPrime Then
document.writeln("Found a prime number: " & i)
Here is the output:
Found a prime number: 3
Found a prime number: 5
Found a prime number: 7
Found a prime number: 11
Found a prime number: 13
Found a prime number: 17
Found a prime number: 19
Found a prime number: 23
Found a prime number: 29
The output looks good. Some notes about the sample script:
- Nested loops, one loop inside another loop, are used.
- The outer loop goes through integers between 3 and 20, and skips even numbers with "Step 2"
- The inner loop goes determines if the current integer "i" is a prime or not
- The inner loop has a conditional "Exit For" statement to terminate the loop as soon as
"i" has been determined as a non-prime number.
