While loop behaving unexpectedly

Get help using Construct 2

I am trying to make a number count up to a point and stop. It should be very simple, I've never had any issues with timers that have counted down, but I'm not sure what's wrong here. What I'm understanding my events to mean is

While Score 1 is Greater Than Score 2
Add 1 to variable score22
Wait 4 Seconds
Set textbox to score2

So what I'm expecting is it to do is count up by 1 every 4 seconds until the score is greater than score1. However what happens is that the number instantly jumps to 10. I'm not exactly sure where I've gone astray in my logic, any guidance would be much appreciated!

Here's a .capx of the small loop: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/124549522/whileSample.capx

Edit: Ugh, immediately upon posting I found just the information needed in the manual. I had been looking up stuff related to while loops when I needed to be looking at the wait command. Solved the issue by replacing the while loop with Every X Seconds and removing the wait from the actions. Nights572013-06-10 02:47:03
