jQuery Question

What I am looking to do is have a number start counting either up or down, lets say from 1 to a 100 or a 100 to 1. I have found many many plugins that do this but they all have a duration variable. The problem is that duration variable applies to how long it takes to get from start to finish. I am looking for a way to set how long it takes to get to the next digit. IE counting from X to Y and updating the number every .25 seconds. This way a larger number would take longer to get to than a smaller number.

This plugin looks great but I can't get it to do what I want.

Any help would be great.

Answer

You can try something like this

```
function count(target, start, end, step, timeInterval) {
var timer = setInterval(function() {
if (start == end) {
clearInterval(timer);
return false;
}
start += step;
target.html(start);
}, timeInterval);
}
var myInterval = 150; //0.15 seconds
count($('#timer1'), 1, 100, 1, 50);
count($('#timer2'), 100, 1, -1, 50);
```

```
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<div id="timer1"></div>
<div id="timer2"></div>
```
