    Default Need help with do-while loop

    Hey guys.
    trying to write a little script that will keep 2 numbers and will keep asking the user to enter a value until the value entered is one between the 2 numbers.

    Just testing out some loops.

    i guess the sample numbers can be anything - numbers(int min, int max){

    just not sure how to do the do-while loop so it continues to ask for an input between them, lets say between 1 and 5.


    any ideas.? i know its not a large script, maybe 5-9 lines, but just getting started.

    do{
       System.out.print("Enter a number:> ");
       myInt = myScanner.nextInt();
    while(myInt > max || myInt < min);

    Something like that you mean?

    do{
       System.out.print("Enter a number ");
       number = Keyboard.readInt();
       }while(number> 4 || number < 10);
    this will keep looping until the user enters a number greater than 4 and less than 10 if you want to include 4 and 10 just throw in an = sign after the less than and greater to signs.
    Hope this helps.
