Kotlin Loop Break and Continue

Like many other programming languages, Kotlin support break and continue during loops and iterations.

  • break function will stop the loop at a specific location.
  • continue will skip 1 iteration.

Example Kotlin loop break

In the below example code will try to loop to index 5 but we have a check at index 3 to break it, the output will be printing indexes until 2.

fun main() {
  var i = 0
  while (i < 5) {
    println(i)
    i++
    if (i == 3) {
      break
    }
  }
}

Output

Example Kotlin loop continue

In the below example code will try to loop to index 5 but we have a check at index 3 to continue and skip it, the output will be printing indexes from 0 to 4 but index 3 will be skipped.

fun main() {
  var i = 0
  while (i < 5) {
    if (i == 3) {
      i++
      continue
    }
    println(i)
