counter with variable step


    Oct 12 2008 | 12:43 pm
    hi,
    i'm sorry, but i can't achieve to do a counter in wich i can change the step.
    i used the [counter] object. all is ok for "up" mode.
    but all becomes complicated with "down" and "palindrome" modes.
    i'm sure somebody made it before me.
    so if you can share or give advice. thx in advance.
    here's what i did :

      I'd use accum.

      I'm not 100% sure I understand what you're trying to accomplish, but
      maybe this is closer? :

      Well, depending on what you want to do, there's the setmin message to
      counter, but note that that will be the minimum before doing the step
      multiplication.
      Perhaps a "goal statement" is in order here: what are you trying to do
      exactly?

      It seems like your approach is trying to get counter to conform after it has counted. My approach is to get counter to count the right range to begin with.
