Looping a Specific Number of Times Using for Statements
The simplest type of loop to create is the for loop, which has been around since the earliest forms of the BASIC language. With a for loop, you instruct C# to begin a loop by starting a counter at a specific value. C# then executes the code within the loop, increments the counter by a defined incremental value, and repeats the loop until the counter reaches an upper limit you've set. The following is the syntax for the basic for loop:
for ([initializers]; [expression]; [iterators]) statement
Initiating the Loop Using For
The for statement both sets up and starts the loop. The for statement has the components shown in Table 15.1.
