c# if statement weird reaction

In a window form, I have a very simple "if" statement triggered by the state of a flag.

If the flag value is "true", a message box is supposed to be displayed only one time because it triggers a flag change to "false".

But, unexpectingly, instead of once, the messagebox is triggered 10 or 12 times.

I cannot understand why.

Any idea ??

bool signal = true;


while (imudata.TryDequeue(out  sensorData))
                        ChartFsr.Series["Heel"].Points.Add(new DataPoint(sensorData.AcquisitionTime, sensorData.HeelForce));
                        if (signal = true && sensorData.HeelForce > 1)
                        {
                            signal = false;
                            MessageBox.Show(signal.ToString());
                            break;
                        }    
                    }
                }

Your loop is setting signal to true, so it keeps looping.
if (signal = true && sensorData.HeelForce > 1)

Try:
if (signal == true && sensorData.HeelForce > 1)

or just

if(signal && sensorData.HeelForce > 1)


also your while doesn't have {} but appears that it would need it. is signal a local member of a method or is it a class member?
