I am re-writing some basic code I was working on and adding GSAP. (TweenMax) I used the TweenMax object (function? I'm new at this.) and then attempted to use jquery's .queue to set up a JQuery function on completion. It doesn't work, but I don't know why, and I don't know what my alternatives are. 


Thank you for your time!

Hi and welcome to the GreenSock forums.


Turns out that basically you're trying to mix oil and water, no matter how hard you try it won't work :)


The method you're using is exclusive of jQuery and therefore it'll throw an error:


Uncaught TypeError: TweenMax.to(...).queue is not a function


Basically that says that .queue() is not a method of the TweenMax class. Keep in mind that most GSAP methods will return the instance itself, which makes chainability a real breeze, just like in jQuery (something that you're used to it seems;) ).


Finally Diaco's advice is spot on, as usual, since GSAP has a ton of callbacks and when you work with Timelines you can even add the call() method to the mix. Also GSAP offers that ability to pass parameters to the callbacks and set the scope in the callbacks. Just take a good look at that link and you'll be on your way.


If you have more questions, we're here to help.


Happy Tweening!!
