Hello GSAP Masters!


I'm trying to replicate the 'submit' button functionality. I don't want to empty the parent container before the shuffle occurs. I'm trying to have them shift from the current position to the next position. 


Can someone point me in the right direction?

Hi quintonjason :)


i think it's what Blake can handle better than me :)


anyway you can record previous position and the define a fromTo tween after appending , something like this :

Kind of strange. That demo is obviously based off of my sortable grid, but it doesn't use a single line of code from it. Even the CSS is completely different.

Like Diaco said, just create a fromTo animation. The grid is setup using floated elements, so you can use relative animations, which lets the browser calculate the layout. All you have to do is offset it from it's old position and then animate it to 0. Here's an example of a relative animation.

Apply that technique to that demo and it looks pretty good! It works with the reorder too.
