loops
Loops
  • Repeating a series of instructions
  • Types of Loops
    • Do
      • Use when the number of iterations is unknown
    • For Next
      • Use when the number of iterations known
do loops
Do Loops
  • Ends based on a condition you specify, either
    • Loop While a condition is True
    • Loop Until a condition becomes True
  • Condition can be located at
    • Top of Loop, Pretest
    • Bottom of Loop, Posttest
do loop general form
Do Loop General Form

Do {While |Until} condition

Statements to execute

Do

Statements to execute

Loop {While | Until} condition

Top of Loop Condition,

Pretest

Bottom of Loop Condition,

Posttest

do s when evaluated
Do's - When Evaluated
  • Top Evaluation, not guaranteed to run once since evaluated BEFORE running

Do While … Loop

Do Until … Loop

slide6
Example:

intA = 0

Do Until intA = 10

intA = intA + 1

Loop

slide7
Example:

intA = 0

Do While intA < 10

intA = intA + 1

Loop

do s when evaluated1
Do's - When Evaluated
  • Bottom Evaluation, will always run at least one time

Do … Loop While

Do … Loop Until

slide9
Example:

intA = 0

Do

intA = intA + 1

Loop Until intA = 10

slide10
Example:

intA = 0

Do

intA = intA + 1

Loop While intA < 10

do loops for next loops deciding which to use

Is the

number of

repetitions

known?

Must

the loop

execute

once?

NO

NO

Top Eval Do Loop

YES

YES

For Next Loop

Bottom Eval Do Loop

Is the

expression

initially

true?

Do Until Loop

Do While Loop

NO

YES

Do Loops / For Next Loops:Deciding Which To Use
for next loops
For Next Loops
  • Use when you know the number of iterations
  • Uses a numeric counter variable, called Loop Index, to control number of iterations
  • Loop Index is incremented at the bottom of the loop on each iteration
  • Step value can be included to specify the incrementing amount to increment Loop Index, step can be a negative number
for next loop general form
For Next Loop General Form

For LoopIndex = InitialValue To TestValue [Step Increment]

Statements

Next [LoopIndex]

slide14
Example:

intA = 0

intB = 0

For intA = 1 To 10

intB = intB + 1

Next

slide15
Example:

intA = 0

intB = 0

For intA = 1 To 10 Step 2

intB = intB + 1

Next

manually exiting for next loops
Manually Exiting For Next Loops
  • In some situations you may need to exit the loop prematurely
  • Use theExit For statement inside the loop structure
slide17
Example:

intA = 0

intB = 0

For intA = 1 To 10

intB = intB + 1

If intB = 3

Exit For

End If

exercises
Exercises

Name: Class:

  • Idenifty the statements that are correctly formed and those that have errors. For those with errors, state what is wrong and how to correct it.

(a) For decIndex = 3.5 to 6.0, Step 0.5

Next

(b) For 4 = 1 to 10 Step 2

Next

(c) For intIndex = 100 to 0 Step -25

Next

(d) For intIndex = 0 to -10 Step -1

Next

(e) For intIndex = 10 to 1

Exercises

Name: Class:

  • How many times will the body of the loop be executed for each of these examples?

(a) For intIndex = 1 to 3

(b) For intIndex = 2 to 11 Step 3

(c) For intIndex = 10 to -1 Step -1

(d) For decIndex = 3.0 to 6.0 Step 0.5

(e) For intIndex = 5 to 1
