Tween through array for values

Warning: Please note

var array = ['1','2','3'];
TweenMax.to('foo', 3, {foo:array});

I would think staggerTo would work... is there a way to increment through an array with just one line like this?

Hi Tom :)


If I understand your question correctly, I think you may be looking for the cycle property of a stagger tween.




Here's a GreenSock pen of cycle in action:

Hopefully that helps. 


Happy tweening.

I'm a little confused by your question.


If you are trying to animate multiple values on the same target in a single tween, you can use the BezierPlugin

var foo = { bar: 2 };

var values = [{ bar: 5 }, { bar: 2 }, { bar: 10 }];

TweenLite.to(foo, 1, { bezier: { values: values, curviness: 0, timeResolution: 0 }});

Here's what I mean:

I hope I gave someone a good laugh at this attempt. But does GSAP have any feature to automatically run through an array of values like that?

Not for the same element. If they were different elements you could use cycle, like PointC mentioned.


But it's easy enough to loop through an array. Here's a couple different ways you could do that.
