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

Posted:

**08/20/2018, 9:12 am**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:

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

- 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[0] == "-"){

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;

}
