error CS1525: Unexpected symbol 'continue'

When trying to compile my program I keep getting an error that says "Unexpected symbol 'continue'." The word 'continue' has the same syntax highlight as the other C# keywords, so I am not sure what is causing the error.

Post your code. It's most likely a syntax error.

A "continue" is only valid within a loop.

Without seeing your code, this is a bit of a guess; but you might get this error message if you accidentally used this statement outside of a loop.

To enable a more complete and accurate analysis, show your code or make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.
