repeatCount

The repeatCount attribute indicates the number of times an animation will take place.

You can use this attribute with the following SVG elements:

Example

<svg viewBox="0 0 220 150" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <rect x="0" y="0" width="100" height="100">
    <animate attributeType="XML" attributeName="y" from="0" to="50"
        dur="1s" repeatCount="5"/>
  </rect>
  <rect x="120" y="0" width="100" height="100">
    <animate attributeType="XML" attributeName="y" from="0" to="50"
        dur="1s" repeatCount="indefinite"/>
  </rect>
</svg>
