JavaScript forEach continue | Example code

  • by

JavaScript forEach() is a function rather than a loop, if we use the continue statement then it throws errors. You can simply return if you want to skip the current iteration.

Note: Use for/of loops to iterate through an array unless you have a good reason not to. However, if you find yourself stuck with a forEach() and need to skip to the next iteration use return.

JavaScript forEach continue example

Simple example code.

<!DOCTYPE html>

    var arr = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
    arr.forEach(v => {
      if (v % 2 !== 0) {




Output: Uncaught SyntaxError: continue must be inside the loop

JavaScript forEach continue

Go to “next” iteration in JavaScript forEach loop

Since you’re in a function, if you return before doing anything else, then you have effectively skipped the execution of the code below the return statement.

    var myArr = [1,2,3,4];

      if (elem === 3) {


Output: 1 2 4

Or adding a return and it will go to the next run of the loop:

// Prints "2, 4"
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5].forEach(v => {
  if (v % 2 !== 0) {
