break statement Javascript

The Javascript break statement is used to terminate a loop, switch or label statement from further processing. Apply it when you want to force one of those types of statements to stop processing.

Example of terminating a loop using break

for (i = 0; i < 20; i++) {
    if(i >= 5){
    document.write("Pass index "+i+" of the loop<br />");

Using break above we were able to take a loop that has a ceiling of 20 passes, and force it to stop processing after 5 passes.


Example of terminating a switch statement using break

If break is not applied to cases of a switch statement, the switch statement will keep processing until its end.

var browser = "Chrome";

switch (browser) {
    case "IE":
        document.write("Internet Explorer makes life hard for webmasters.");
    case "Chrome":
        document.write("Chrome conforms to popular browser standards.");
    case "Firefox":
        document.write("Firefox is bulky but developer friendly.");
        document.write("No information for browser: "+browser);
