repeatDur property

Sets or gets the number of seconds that an element timeline repeats.

Syntax

JScript
object.repeatDur = sTimesTime = object.repeatDur

Property values

Type: String

A String that specifies one of the following values.

Remarks

Use the dur property or the end property to define each repeat iteration. The repeatDur property has no effect if the duration is not defined or is indefinite.

Do not use this property on the same element as the REPEATCOUNT attribute. Typically, repeatDur is set on elements that are time container, such as the t:PAR or t:SEQ elements. Elements with the TIMECONTAINER attribute set are also time containers. If you set the REPEATDUR attribute on an element that is not a time container, it sets the element duration to the repeatDur value. This property is useful to coordinate the timing of an element with a media element that has a fractional duration, such as an audio file with a duration of 3.45 seconds.

A repeatDur value of zero is invalid. If zero is specified, the default value is used instead.

In Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, the repeatDur property applies to the transitionFilter.

Examples

This example uses the repeatDur attribute to demonstrate how to repeat an element timeline.
