Reset Count~ maximum

Apr 18 2010 | 8:31 pm

Hi All,

Is there a way to reset the the count~ maximum to infinity?

I think giving it 0 as a count limit will do that.

counter is never really set to infinity, just a large number; it will roll over to negative numbers at some point. To get max range out of a counter, try setting the max to 2147483647, which is 7FFFFFFF in hex.

Setting 0 as limit does the trick

But of course Chris Muir is still right. This sets its limit as high as possible, but of course there still -is- a limit at which it will wrap around.

I don’t know if something changed recently, but setting the max to 0 does not work for me. The highest number it can count to is 7FFFFFFF, though, for sure. I had inside information; I wrote the counter object originally, but I haven’t done maintenance on it for over a decade.
