[Loop] ... [/Loop] repeats the contents of the container tag a specified number of times. A single parameter specifies the number of times the tag should loop. The [Loop_Count] tag can be used within the container to return the value of the current loop from 1 up to the end value.

Optional -From and -To parameters allow the loop to loop between any two values. [Loop: -From=11, -To=20] ... [/Loop] will loop 10 times and [Loop_Count] will report the values 11, 12, 13, ..., 20.

An optional -By parameter allows the increment of the loop to be changed. [Loop: 10, -By=2] ... [/Loop] will loop 4 times and [Loop_Count] will report the values 1, 3, 5, 7, 9.

The -By parameter can be used with the -From and -To parameters to loop down. [Loop: -From=10, -To=1, -By=(-1)] ... [/Loop] will loop 10 times and [Loop_Count] will report the values 10, 9, 8, ..., 1.

Optional Parameters
Loop Count The number of iterations the loop should perform.
-From The starting value for loop iterations.
-To The ending value for loop iterations.
-By The number which should be used to modify the loop count on each loop iteration. Defaults to 1.

Change Notes

In prior versions of Lasso this tag accepted -LoopFrom, -LoopTo, and -LoopIncrement parameters. These have been replaced by -From, -To, and -By respectively. The older parameters have been deprecated, but will continue to work without modification.


To repeat a portion of a page a set number of times:

Use the [Loop] ... [/Loop] tags with an integer value in the opening tag. The contents of the tags will be repeated the specified number of times.

[Loop: 3]
  <br>This is repeated 3 times.

<br>This is repeated 3 times.
<br>This is repeated 3 times.
