I've created some morphing icons that morph back and forth with different easing functions on .mouseenter() and .mouseleave() (using jQuery .hover method) 


I'd like to force the Tween in my hoverOver functions to complete before the hoverOff function is allowed to start.



I'm a little stumped on how to achieve this. Can anyone point me in the right direction of how to do this?

Thanks for the demo. Nice effect you have there.

I had to cut a bunch of out to help see what was happening.

I also made the duration super long for testing purposes.


I think fromTo will help a lot here:


function hoverOver(){
        //put timeline into tween to add easing
        TweenMax.to(tl, 10, { progress: 1});
      function hoverOff(){
        //send tl back to beginning with a differnt easing
       TweenMax.fromTo(tl, 0.25, {progress:1}, {progress:0, ease: Power2.easeIn});

ah, I just saw Diaco's response. 

Yes, a problem was that while you were tweening time back to 0 the progress was still tweening to 1.
