JavaScript For Loop

JavaScript Loops

Very often when you write code, you want the same block of code to run over and over again in a row. Instead of adding several almost equal lines in a script we can use loops to perform a task like this.
In JavaScript there are two different kind of loops:
  • for - loops through a block of code a specified number of times
  • while - loops through a block of code while a specified condition is true

The for Loop

The for loop is used when you know in advance how many times the script should run.


for (var=startvalue;var<=endvalue;var=var+increment)
code to be executed


Explanation: The example below defines a loop that starts with i=0. The loop will continue to run as long as i is less than, or equal to 10. i will increase by 1 each time the loop runs.

Note: The increment parameter could also be negative, and the <= could be any comparing statement.

<script type="text/javascript">
var i=0;
for (i=0;i<=10;i++)
document.write("The number is " + i);
document.write("<br />");


The number is 0
The number is 1
The number is 2
The number is 3
The number is 4
The number is 5
The number is 6
The number is 7
The number is 8
The number is 9
The number is 10
