Hi there,


I'm wondering if is possible to load an animation with different width and a small delay each time the width gets bigger.


For example:


This is the original code:


The css for the <div cortana_blurb> is set to width: 0;


MU.showBlurb = function(){
TweenMax.to(cortana_blurb, .15, {width: 34,  ease:Linear.easeNone}), .4;
TweenMax.to(cortana_blurb, .15, {width:64, ease:Linear.easeNone, delay:.4 });
TweenMax.to(cortana_blurb, .15, {width:111, ease:Linear.easeNone, delay:.8 });
TweenMax.to(cortana_blurb, .15, {width:144, ease:Linear.easeNone, delay:1.2 });
TweenMax.to(cortana_blurb, .15, {width:204, ease:Linear.easeNone, delay:1.6 });
What I want is to minimize it to one line code like:
MU.showBlurb = function(){
TweenMax.to(cortana_blurb, .15, {width: 34, 64, 111, 144, 204, ease:Linear.easeNone}), .4;
I know it's a trick one, but if there is a way to do it and you guy could help me it will be great.
Kind regards,
Fernando Fas

Thanks for the clear explanation. 


The best way to solve this would be to create an array of all the widths and then loop through that array and create a new tween for each animation to a new width.


var tl = new TimelineLite();
var widths = [34, 64, 111, 144, 204];

for (var i = 0; i < widths.length; i++){
  tl.to(".orange", 0.2, {width:widths[i], ease:Linear.easeNone}, i * 0.4)

Hey Carl,


You are a star.

That's exactly what I was looking for.


A big thank you to you.
