Loop back to input if input is not number.
As the title states, how do i make function loop back to input if the input is not number?
try: count = int(input("Give me a number: ")) except ValueError: print("That's not a number!") else: print("Hi " * count)
You would have to create a loop manually using a while or for loop. try/except/else statements have no built in looping features.
A simple example would be something like this:
while True: # True is always True so the loop will go indefinitely unless you stop it manually try: count = int(input("Give me a number: ")) except ValueError: print("That's not a number!") else: print("Hi " * count) break # break will stop the loop
My bad, I tried the same thing just moments ago, but my indentation was off. Thanks a lot :D
