Similar to a Do Loop or a Repeat-Until Loop in text-based programming languages, a While Loop, shown as follows, executes a subdiagram until a condition occurs.

The While Loop executes the subdiagram until the conditional terminal, an input terminal, receives a specific Boolean value. The conditional terminal in a While Loop behaves the same as in a For Loop with a conditional terminal. However, the While Loop does not include a set iteration count and runs infinitely if the condition never occurs.

The iteration terminal, shown as follows, is an output terminal that contains the number of completed iterations.

The iteration count for the While Loop always starts at zero.
