Repeat

The Repeat group activity is responsible for repeating the series of grouped activities until the specified condition evaluates to true. The activities are always executed once before checking whether the condition is true. After executing the series of activities, the initial evaluation of the condition is done, and it repeats when the condition evaluates as true. The Repeat activity evaluates the loop's conditional statement to determine whether or not more iterations of the loop are required.
