continue (C# Reference)

The continue statement passes control to the next iteration of the enclosing while, do, for, or foreach 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)

        // Keep the console open in debug mode.
        Console.WriteLine("Press any key to exit.");

For more information, see the C# Language Specification. The language specification is the definitive source for C# syntax and usage.
