Name

FixedLoop

Purpose

Loop a fixed number of times.

Description

This loop function can be used only in the loop expression tab and specifies that the associated output map element is to loop a specified number of times.

This function is typically used in the case where the minimum number of times the map element occurs is zero and a child map element has a default value or constant values that want to appear in the output.

You can use the LoopIndex function in conjunction with this function to get the index number for each occurrence of the output loop.
