Is there a special VB statement  to let you jump to the next iteration in a loop?

Jump to next iteration in a loop

Say you got a loop like the one below.  How do I accomplish the same task without the goto statement?

  For Each MyControl In ControlCollection
    If TypeOf MyControl Is Whatever Then Goto SkipThisOne
    ' Provide code here to work with valid MyControl
SkipThisOne:
  Next MyControl

And, NO - I do NOT mean do as follows...

For Each MyControl In ControlCollection
        If not TypeOf MyControl Is Whatever Then
        ' Provide code here to work with valid MyControl
       end if
       Next MyControl

In terms of a built in collection type used in a for..each loop basically no. You have the choices of using program flow logic or goto statements, the latter of which I would say never use.

Hi,
What's wrong with using the second method:
For Each MyControl In ControlCollection
        If not TypeOf MyControl Is Whatever Then
        ' Provide code here to work with valid MyControl
       end if
       Next MyControl
?

It looks like a much better solution than using thhe goto statement.

Best Regards,

David

But there isn't a special VB statement  to let you jump to the next iteration in a loop?

There is no special statement that allows you to skip to next, no.
