# Time for action—Using the continue keyword

Let's say that we want to display the number from 0 to 9 included, but not the number 8. We can use the` continue` keyword to do so, by directly going to the next iteration of our loop.

Let's write the following code that contains our loop, and a test done at each iteration to jump to the next iteration if needed:

```for(i in 0...10)
{
if(i==8)
{
continue;
}
trace(i);
}
```

## What just happened?

In this Time for Action, we test if` i` is equal to 8, if it is, we simply go to the next iteration, therefore avoiding the printing of` i`.

This code will display the following:

TesthaXe.hx:12: 0

TesthaXe.hx:12: 1

TesthaXe.hx:12: 2

TesthaXe.hx:12: 3

TesthaXe.hx:12: 4

TesthaXe.hx:12: 5

TesthaXe.hx:12: 6

TesthaXe.hx:12: 7 ...
