Whenever I am working with PHP MySQLi recordsets, I have always worked with the returned data using the standard while loop to iterate over the recordset. Recently, however, I started wondering if there is a way to use a for loop instead. This would be handy in situations where you want to limit the number of results returned.

Here is an example of using the while loop:

//Prepare a query that will produce a reverse-order recordset
$sql = "SELECT * FROM tblNames ORDER BY numberID DESC";
$recordset = $conn -> query($sql);

//Count the number of contacts added to the list
$contactCount = 0;

while($row = $recordset -> fetch_assoc())
    //If the list has reached its maximum number (5), end the display loop
    if($contactCount >= 5)

    $contactList .= $row["name"] . "<br>";

    //Increment the number of contacts added to the list
    $contactCount ++;

//Use '$contactList' somewhere....

While this definitely works, there must be a better way to end the loop after a specified number of iterations. Is it easier to use a for loop in a situation like this? If so, how?
