Re: [QF-Test] How to set a variable from a Break in a loop?

Hi Cosmin, hi Rick,

there's also a very nice but little known feature of the QF-Test
'Loop' node which I copied from Python's "for" loop: You can add an
'Else' node to the bottom of the 'Loop' which will be executed if and
only if the 'Loop' is not exited prematurely via 'Break', i.e. exactly
in the case when a search fails.

Best regards,

> Good morning/evening QFS users, Martin and/or Gregor:
