Halogens contain 7 valence electrons. The "magic number" is 8 so they need to gain one electron either by transferring (to form ionic bond) or sharing (to form covalent bond). An example of a halogen in an ionic bond is NaCl...Cl being the halogen. An example of a halogen in a covalent compound is Iodide...which is just iodine bonded to itself.
Thank You
