can't get InputField to work inside a While command

I need to be able to input parameters for an a-priori indeterminate
number of cases. The way I've been trying to do this is by using a
While statement containing InputFields, one of which asks if there are
to be more cases to deal with. If not, the previously True logical
'test' for While is reset to False.

But apparently InputField is not even recognized as part of the 'body'
inside a While. By itself InputField works as expected, but not in this
reduced example:

cntr = 0;
While[cntr<3, cntr++; InputField[xx]]

which only produces

1
2
3

What am I missing? Or am I going about this the wrong way?
