Use if statements like this if( 1 == count ) insteed of like this if ( count == 1).

In case if you mistakenly put in just a single = signin the second case, like this:

if( count = 1) //count will be assigned with 1

whereas if you made the same mistake with the constant value first:

if( 1 = count ) //Will give Error
