For Each $VAR$ As $TYPE$ In $COL$ $END$ Next

Parameters

  • COL - Shows basic code completion list at the point where the variable is evaluated

  • TYPE - Analyzes code and guesses type of element of a collection.

  • VAR - When executed in a variable declaration (where variable name should stand), suggests a name for the variable

  • END - The caret position after the template is applied.

After you specify the parameters, the caret is positioned so that you can continue coding the loop body.

itar

Parameters

  • ARRAY - Suggests a variable whose type is an array type

  • VAR - Suggests a unique name for an index variable at the evaluation point

  • TYPE - Analyzes code and guesses type of element of a collection.

  • ELEMENT - When executed in a variable declaration (where variable name should stand), suggests a name for the variable

  • END - The caret position after the template is applied.

After you specify the parameters, the caret is positioned so that you can continue coding the loop body.

Parameters

  • LIST - Suggests variables of the specified type

  • INDEX - Suggests a unique name for an index variable at the evaluation point

  • TYPE - Analyzes code and guesses type of element of a collection.

  • VAR - Suggests a unique name for an index variable at the evaluation point

  • TYPE - Analyzes code and guesses type of element of a collection.

  • ELEM - When executed in a variable declaration (where variable name should stand), suggests a name for the variable

  • END - The caret position after the template is applied.

After you specify the parameters, the caret is positioned so that you can continue coding the loop body.

Dim

Declare a variable
