 Number Increasing Automatically on Oct 14, 2013 at 4:07:33 am

I have seen some posts here but none of them has the answer I am looking for.
I want to make a number increasing from 0 to 28 357 561, if possible with \$ at the beginning. I have seen some tutorials on youtube but all of them just teach you how to increase the number up to 1000000, if it is possible I want to keep the spaces every 3 numbers.

Thanks

Create a text layer(shift+cntl+alt+T) and make it right justified. Add the effect Expressions Control > Angle Control to the effect.

Twirl open the text layer and alt click the source text stopwatch to open the expression dialogue and add the following expression(courtesy of Dan Ebberts). I used comma's instead of spaces, but if you want spaces in the line "outStr += "," + s.substr(-i*3,3)" replace the comma in quotes with space: ```numDecimals = 2; commas = true; dollarSign = true; dur = 4; s = effect("Angle Control")("Angle").value.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; }```

I made an example project if anything is unclear: 6633_moneycounter.aep.zip

Hey John,

Thanks a lot, that is exactly what I was looking for and I could not find anywhere.
You are the best!

It was mostly Dan Ebberts who did, but I'm glad I was able to pass it on.
