continue (C# Reference)

The continue statement passes control to the next iteration of the enclosing iteration statement in which it appears.

In this example, a counter is initialized to count from 1 to 10. By using the continue statement in conjunction with the expression (i < 9), the statements between continue and the end of the for body are skipped.

class ContinueTest 
{
    static void Main() 
    {
        for (int i = 1; i <= 10; i++) 
        {
            if (i < 9) 
            {
                continue;
            }
            Console.WriteLine(i);
        }

        // Keep the console open in debug mode.
        Console.WriteLine("Press any key to exit.");
        Console.ReadKey();
    }
}
/*
Output:
9
10
*/
