Maybe the poster was thinking of something like this:

repeat while n < the number of controls of group "grpbuttons"

The "number of controls" function seems to be pretty fast, but there 
might be others not fast and it would be faster to not repeatedly 
count.  An example might be "number of lines" for lots of lines.
