How to create endless loop with keypress

Hi,

In the former days of programming I used an endless loop in a subroutine to keep on going with a keypress to stop. Anybody got an idea how to do this with DO UNTIL or DO WHILE?

Yes, Erel, I agree but I want to create an endless loop to keep on going (like bounce a ball against the screensides) without using the timeticksub.

Hi, I don't know if it is what you really want, but endless loop you can make this way :

do until 0 = 1
doevents
loop

The timer is to slow for what I want I think. I solved the problem in a "for next" loop. Now the ball really bounces (see post moving figures)

RandomCoder I don't think that was what he refered to, since he talks abou using a for next loop.
I think he is preparing a new post?
Maybe Im wrong, I don't know...

Stellaferox used a for next loop to bounce the ball. I'm presuming that's what he's refering too.

Yep, that's right. I tried to use a FORNEXT LOOP but fell back on a DO UNTIL loop that endlessly goes on and bounces the ball to the screensides (see code)
