This is bad practice, and it can be easily overlooked inside of such a commonly-used bit of code. Of course, you might have a case where decrementing your loop would not work, so this is just something to consider should the situation allow for it.
Well, technically, this code will give two other errors: In addition to proper spacing around the operators, JSLint also requires a space between the closing parenthesis and the opening curly brace.
So although in many small instances this might not matter, it is best practice to try to cache values before using them. So what is the alternative? It is what decides whether the for loop continues executing or not. In a large application, and with large values and multiple loops, this can contribute to performance issues.
And by all means, do the necessary research before you take my word as gold. We could do this a couple of ways, but the following method will suffice to make JSLint happy: No matter the language, i is the default name for a loop counter. It is used when you need to do a set of operations many times, with an increment of some kind after each run through the block of code.
The counter variable is incremented after every loop in the increment section of the for loop. One of the things JSLint will often point out is the lack of spacing around your operators. This check usually includes the counter variable in some way. The counter variable is something that is created and usually used only in the for loop to count how many times the for loop has looped.
For loops may seem very confusing at first, but let me assure you, they are quite useful and should be studied thoroughly by anyone who wishes to become an intermediate programmer. My guess is that using an increment operator in a harmless for loop is not going to cause much of a problem for you.
The counter variable name i may seem a little strange, but it has been used for years now! Pay special close attention to the three different items that are on the first line of the for loop code.The while loop loops through a block of code as long as a specified condition is true.
If you forget to increase the variable used in the condition, the loop will never end. This will crash your browser. The do/while loop is a variant of the while loop. This loop will execute the code block once.
