Thanks for taking the time. I resorted to Lua instead.

Is there a way to make one counter execute different actions when it reaches different values?
For example: at 5 it executes X, at 10 it executes Y, at 15 it executes Z, etc...

or... some way to combine this into 1 counter:

Code: Select all

[Variables]
Numb=10
MaxNumber=1000

[cCounter1]
Measure=Calc
Formula=cCounter1+1
IfEqualValue=#Numb#
IfEqualAction=!blah1

[cCounter2]
Measure=Calc
Formula=cCounter2+1
IfEqualValue=(#Numb#+250)
IfEqualAction=!blah2

[cCounter3]
Measure=Calc
Formula=cCounter3+1
IfEqualValue=(#Numb#+500)
IfEqualAction=!blah3

Could you give me more detail on the actions you wish to execute?

They are going to execute a !bang that activates a script which fades in meters:

Code: Select all

!CommandMeasure "MeterFade1" "Activate()"
!CommandMeasure "MeterFade2" "Activate()"
!CommandMeasure "MeterFade3" "Activate()"

So, my hope is that as one counter counts up, different images are faded in via the script:

Code: Select all

[MeterFade1]
Measure=Script
ScriptFile=Fade.lua
MeterName= Img1

This should work:

Code: Select all

[cCounter]
Measure=Calc
Formula=cCounter%500+1

[MeasureNumber]
Measure=Calc
Formula=CEIL(cCounter/250)

[Action]
Measure=Calc
Formula=cCounter%250
IfEqualValue=0
IfEqualAction=!CommandMeasure "MeterFade[MeasureNumber]" "Activate()"
DynamicVariables=1

[MeterFade1]
Measure=Script
ScriptFile=Fade.lua

[MeterFade2]
Measure=Script
ScriptFile=Fade.lua

[MeterFade3]
Measure=Script
ScriptFile=Fade.lua

Can there be a Counter measure that counts down and resets at a predefined value ?? I tried a lot for the past 4 hrs but in vain. Since the count down measure code is already bit complicated may be that's why I'm unable to do it. Can anyone do it please ?

BTW, I'm not that good in maths too.

Unfortunately it does not appear that what you ask is possible. The reset value for that particular style of counter must be 0.

However, the effect can be accomplished by using two measures.

Code: Select all

[Variables]
Max=5
Reset=3

[cCounter]
Measure=Calc
formula=(cCounter-1+(#Max#-#Reset#+1))%(#Max#-#Reset#+1)

[cCounter2]
Measure=Calc
Formula=cCounter+#Reset#
