The break and continue statement

Let’s learn how to have more control over loops using the break and continue statements.

The break Statement

The break is used for prematurely stopping a loop. When Dart finds a break statement, it breaks from the loop regardless of whether the iterations have been completed or not.

It’s mostly used with a conditional statement. Based on the condition, the loop will either need to exit or not.

Let’s look at an example similar to the one we looked at with for-loops, where we have a list of integers and we only want to print the even integers from the list. In this example, however, we only want to know what the first occurrence of an even integer is.
