Looping a switch statement?

Hi everyone,

I have a system where a user can order some predefined items. To do this, I have been using a switch statement, e.g:

However, once i've reached the end of the individual cases, I would like them to repeat, so the user could buy more than one item at once, and have this added to an array list. I think I have the array worked out, but the loop is proving problematic. I understand that the code below is one way I can do it, but I don't know how to increase the counter so the statement can loop properly.

Can anyone please help? Thanks

You *are* increasing the counter: i++.
