In programming, iterators are the mechanisms that allow us to run through all the items of a collection without needing to know in advance how many of them compose that collection. To do this, we can use the commands For Each… Next in Xojo. What are the main differences when comparing For Each… Next with the conventional For… Next? See how the For Each… Next loop iterates every item associated with the object. It’s a more concise, stylish and Object-Oriented (OOP) way of doing things when compared with the classic For… Next loop.

Xojo creates native apps and uses the native user interface toolkit on each platform. This is important from the end-user’s point of view – we’ve all used apps that didn’t feel quite right, often Java or Electron-made apps. But it’s also important from the developer’s point of view because many of these design changes are effectively done for you.

When looping through an array, I am a big fan of using For Each as I find it more readable than using a For loop with a counter and looking up the item in the array with the counter. Sometimes it’s fun to do stuff just because you can! Plus, it makes for a good excuse to learn about some more advanced Xojo features
