### Linking number counter speed to percentage (slider) value

Hi there!

I have a problem with linking the speed of a number counter on a graph follow the speed at which the graph itself progresses.
The graph stops at certain intervals through a trim path-animation I've keyframed, which the position of the number counter is linked to, but the counter progresses when the graph stops.

I've used this expression for the number counter, which I picked up at the Creative Cow Forums:

Code: Select all
`numDecimals = 0;commas = true;dollarSign = false;beginCount = 0;endCount = 12400000000;dur = 18;t = time - inPoint;s = linear (t, 0, dur, beginCount, endCount).toFixed(numDecimals);prefix = "";if (s == "-"){prefix = "-";s = s.substr(1);}if(dollarSign) prefix += "\$";if (commas){decimals = "";if (numDecimals > 0){decimals = s.substr(-(numDecimals + 1));s = s.substr(0,s.length - (numDecimals + 1));}outStr = s.substr(-s.length, (s.length-1)%3 +1);for (i = Math.floor((s.length-1)/3); i > 0; i--){outStr += "," + s.substr(-i*3,3);}prefix + outStr + decimals;}else{prefix + s;}`

With the little knowledge I have of expressions, I can't figure out how I can link the completion of the counter to correspond with the slider value that's linked to the Trim Paths-value. So, does anyone here have any input of how I can add a completion-expression to this existing expression?

Cheers
