can't get InputField to work inside a While command
Posted:

I need to be able to input parameters for an apriori 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?
