    It does, it's just not how you would normally expect to implement it with a break statement.  When you set up the loop there is a check box on the screen that says check the condition continuously.  What this does is place the loop itself in a thread and then has another thread that monitors the conditions you have set and anytime one of the conditions is no longer satisfied it kills the other thread thereby breaking the loop.  Simply place the condition that you want to break on in the conditional logic statement for the loop and check the box on the loop screen.

    This also works for if statements so that you can break an if statement at any time the condition is no longer satistfied

    Please Matthew,

    I was trying to check the loop options so I found I have to select [ loop as long as the following expression is true ]
    but as I understand the loop instruction will only check this condition at the beginning of the loop cycle.
    but I want to break the loop in the middle of the loop cycle according to another condition status.

    I hope my explanation is clear.
