This lesson describes how to use Exit Sub in Visual Basic .NET
The Exit Sub statement is an unconditional jump command that stops performing tasks early (if necessary).
It makes the program stop executing the current subroutine but unlike GoTo and such, cannot make the program jump around arbitrarily, possibly leading to spaghetti code.
Ex example of Exit Sub statement:
Private Sub MyTask(ByVal size As Integer) For i As Integer = 0 To size If i = 10 Then Exit Sub ' should stop the task early Else MyTextBox.Text &= "The value of i is: " & i.ToString & Environment.NewLine End If Next End SubPrevious Lesson | Next Lesson
