Action chart element.
Do While Loop is one of three "loop" blocks that are used to implement iterations. The other two are For Loop and While Loop.
For detailed information on Do While loop please refer here.
In "do while loop" you define some action or a sequence of actions using other action chart blocks. These actions are executed if the condition defined for this loop evaluates to true.
Loop resembles While Loop
in many respects. The difference between "while loop" and "do
while loop" is that the statement
of a "do while loop" is always executed at least once, even if the
evaluates to false
the first time. Whereas in a "while loop", if the condition is
the first time
the statement is never executed.
Condition – Boolean expression that will be evaluated to decide whether the action of the "do while loop" should be performed once more.
Label – You can add here some comments, explaining the meaning of this "do while loop". The comments will be shown inside the block instead of Java code corresponding to this loop.
Fill color – Sets the fill color for the element. Click inside the control and choose a color from the set of most used ones, or choose some custom color using the Colors dialog box.
