  • morandimus commented on Else Clauses on Loops

    Grinnz, I think the functionality of the continue block would be unaffected. It is executed after each iteration of the loop body, so if the loop block is executed at least once, the continue block is executed at least once (and the else block is skipped), and if the loop body is never executed, the continue block is never executed (and the else block is executed).

    Everything I read is SQLite or any other version beside MS SQL. I’m starting to wonder if it’s similar to Corona SDK in that you create a sql database to store information, then push that data to your server DB.

    If anyone else has any experience or information PLEASE…
