JavaScript continue Statement (Live Playground)

In this tutorial, we will explore the continue statement, and learn how to use it in our code.

continue Statement

The continue statement is used to skip the current iteration and move on to the next one when a certain condition is met.


for (let i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
if (i === 5) {
console.log(`Iteration ${i + 1}`);

In the example above, the loop skips the iteration when i is equal to 5, and the output displays the iteration number from 1 to 10, excluding 6.

Understanding and using the continue statement is crucial for controlling loop iterations based on specific conditions.
