# skipWhile method

- bool test(
- E

inherited

Creates an `Iterable`

that skips leading elements while `test`

is satisfied.

The filtering happens lazily. Every new Iterator of the returned
iterable iterates over all elements of `this`

.

The returned iterable provides elements by iterating this iterable,
but skipping over all initial elements where `test(element)`

returns
true. If all elements satisfy `test`

the resulting iterable is empty,
otherwise it iterates the remaining elements in their original order,
starting with the first element for which `test(element)`

returns `false`

.

Example:

```
final numbers = <int>[1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7];
var result = numbers.skipWhile((x) => x < 5); // (5, 6, 7)
result = numbers.skipWhile((x) => x != 3); // (3, 5, 6, 7)
result = numbers.skipWhile((x) => x != 4); // ()
result = numbers.skipWhile((x) => x.isOdd); // (2, 3, 5, 6, 7)
```

## Implementation

```
@override
Iterable<E> skipWhile(bool Function(E) test) => _base.skipWhile(test);
```
