counting up number with this expression but using COMMAS
on Nov 8, 2006 at 8:36:07 am

is there anymay to get the commas to show up when using this expression on a text layer to count up?

startCount = 0;
endCount = 500000;
countDur = 200;
Math.round(linear(time,0,countDur,startCount,endCount))

Treat each group of numbers separately or separate their substrings. I think Dan, Filip or yikesmikes expalined it (again) not so long ago and provided the code, so do a search.

This should do it as long as you don't go above 999,999:

startCount = 0;
endCount = 500000;
countDur = 200;
s = "" + Math.round(linear(time,0,countDur,startCount,endCount));

if (s.length > 3){
s.substr(0, s.length -3) + "," + s.substr(-3);
}else{
s
}

Alright all you scripting geniuses, is there any way to add a millions place comma as well, for those times when you have to go over a million? I tried to figure it out, but couldn't seem to make it work.

I hope this pastes in correctly (it has a few backslashes in it which seem to cause problems some times):


startCount = 0;
endCount = 500000;
countDur = 200;
s = "" + Math.round(linear(time,0,countDur,startCount,endCount));
s.replace(/\B(?=(\d{3})+(?!\d))/g, ",");

Hello Dan

Could you please kindly tell me if you can put a "+" sign at the end of a counting up 70,000 with comma?

Thank you so much.
Alex

Counter Preset has commas as default, and you can change them to any other character if you want: http://www.vdodna.com/products/counter-preset/
I hope you will find it Useful

Hey I realise this post is almost a decade old but I just posted a video solution that can give you commas up to 999,999,999,999
