JavaScript break and continue Statements Example

Updated on     Kisan Patel

In javascript, the break statement is used to break the loop completely in middle.

The following script shows the use of break.

for (i = 10; i >= 0; i--) {
   if (i == 5) {
      break;
   }
}
document.write("My Lucky number is" + i);

The continue statement is used to skip the current iteration and continue with the next iteration of the loop.

for (i = 10; i >= 0; i--) {
   if (i == 5) {
      x = i;
      continue;
   }
   document.write(i);
   document.write("<br/>");
}
document.write("The number " + x + " is missing in above list");
