Hi everyone,


I was wondering if anyone could help me. I am planning on creating some infographics on a website when once scrolled to on the page, the animation will kick in. I am able to create scroll based animations however I cannot seem to create an animation that will count a number from zero to a given number on the page.


Does anyone have any experience of this and if so, could you point me in the right direction?


Many Thanks,

Mark (wearetangerine)

Hi wearetangerine :)


as you can read in Doc. : 


A TweenLite instance handles tweening one or more properties of any object (or array of objects) over time


so , pls check this out :

Hello Diaco and Greensock,

If it was an array of the alphabet, how could I tell it to scroll through like that animation but stop at a predetermined given value?

I'm trying to do a slot machine type effect that spells out different words each time the user hits the button.

Some how I would use an array of the alphabet string?

Hi @wpsenior,


Answered questions might get overlooked so it's better to ask a new question.


Arrays are objects, so animating them works same. Add your alphabet to an array, and you can lookup values based on the index.
