Break ifadesi içinde bulunduğu döngüyü , switch, or label ifadelerini sonlandırır  ve programın kontrolünü sonlandırılan ifadeyi ardından takip eden ifadeye geçirir.

Syntax

break [etiket];
etiket
İsteğe bağlıdır.İfade etiketini tanımlamakta kullanılır. Eğer belirtilen ifade bir döngü ya da switch değilse, mutlaka kullanılması gerekir.

Description

The break statement includes an optional label that allows the program to break out of a labeled statement. The break statement needs to be nested within the referenced label. The labeled statement can be any block statement; it does not have to be preceded by a loop statement.

Examples

The following function has a break statement that terminates the while loop when i is 3, and then returns the value 3 * x.

function testBreak(x) {
  var i = 0;

  while (i < 6) {
    if (i == 3) {
      break;
    }
    i += 1;
  }

  return i * x;
}

The following code uses break statements with labeled blocks. A break statement must be nested within any label it references. Notice that inner_block is nested within outer_block.

outer_block: {
  inner_block: {
    console.log('1');
    break outer_block; // breaks out of both inner_block and outer_block
    console.log(':-('); // skipped
  }
  console.log('2'); // skipped
}

The following code also uses break statements with labeled blocks but generates a Syntax Error because its break statement is within block_1 but references block_2. A break statement must always be nested within any label it references.

block_1: {
  console.log('1');
  break block_2; // SyntaxError: label not found
}

block_2: {
  console.log('2');
}
