SetIntervalin vbscript

Hi,
Can anyone tell me the solution to this:
I have text fading from white to blue using the setInterval function.

I have:
fontint = setInterval("changeColor",50)


Sub changeColor()
... Then the rest of the code to change the color

It works fine but when it's finished fading I want setInterval to stop. It continues calling that function after it's finished.
Microsoft DHTML documentation says (about SetInterval):
"Returns an integer identifier representing the interval. Use this identifier to clear (stop) the interval."

I have tried setting fontint to null and zero but it makes no difference. I have also tried this:
fontint = setInterval("changeColor",0)

and this,

fontint = setInterval("",0)


Please any ideas would be very welcome.
Thanks,
Rhods.

instead of using setInterval, call setTimeout from the sub like this:


   sub changeColor

     'your change-color code here

     if ( notFinishedFading ) then
        setTimeout("changeColor",50)
     end if

   end sub



and instead of this,

   fontint = setInterval("changeColor",0)

just do this

   call changeColor

declare global:
dim myinterval

myinterval = setInterval("changecolor", 100)

and to stop:
clearInterval(myinterval)
