Output value to class

Hey guys, following script would output result to #value element, but I need it to output to class of certain element so that it loads progress bar, for example class is "load-1", "load-2", "load-3" and so on, do you have any idea of how to do that?

                        function animateValue(id, start, end, duration) {
                            var range = end - start;
                            var current = start;
                            var increment = end > start? 1 : +1;
                            var stepTime = Math.abs(Math.floor(duration / range));
                            var obj = document.getElementById(id);
                            var timer = setInterval(function() {
                                current += increment;
                                obj.innerHTML = current;
                                if (current == end) {
                            }, stepTime);

                        animateValue("value", 0, 25, 10000);

Use jQuery's .toggleClass() based on the values you get. For each specific range, toggle the specified class.


Or if you prefer vanilla JS, classList is your friend.
