Sets or gets the number of times an element timeline repeats.
XML <ELEMENT t:REPEAT = vRepetitions... > Scripting [ vRepetitions = ] object.repeat
vRepetitions A variant that specifies one of the following values.
- Timeline repeats indefinitely.
- A floating-point number greater than
0that specifies how many times the timeline repeats.
The property is read/write. The property has no default value.
Do not use this property on the same element as the t:REPEATDUR attribute. Typically, t:REPEAT is set on elements that are time containers, such as the t:PAR element or the t:SEQ element. Elements containing the t:TIMELINE attribute are also time containers. If you set the t:REPEAT attribute on an element that is not a time container, it increases the element's duration by multiplying the duration by the repeat count. This causes the element to remain active on the timeline for the increased duration, but it doesn't change the element's appearance as it repeats the local timeline.
tis used to associate this attribute with an XML namespace.
