Slide Timeline length

Is there a way to dynamically "get" the length of the time line for a slide and set it to a variable in storyline 3? Im looking to have a slide countdown timer that dynamically adjusts depending on the length of the slide and counts down as the slide progresses. I know I can use the seekbar within player features to show slide timeline progression to the learner but that's not exactly what I'm looking for.

You can get it by snooping in the DOM structure, with javascript. Here is the script snippet:

var timelineLength = Number(document.querySelectorAll("[data-ref=progressBar]")[0].getAttribute('aria-valuemax'));

 

You can use 

var player = GetPlayer();
player.SetVar('yourVar', timelineLength); 

to set it to a storyline variable.

You can also access the current location by substituting getAttribute('aria-valuemax')); with getAttribute('aria-value'));
