Newbee here,


I'm looking for the simplest way to toggle back and forth [ morph ] between two svg icons. 


That's it...


Thank you for your time!!!!!

Hi and welcome to the GreenSock forums.


Thanks for the question.

Morphing SVG paths is super easy with MorphSVGPlugin:

var morph = TweenMax.to("#circle", 1, {morphSVG:"#hippo", repeat:1, yoyo:true, repeatDelay:0.2})



Find out all the details here: https://greensock.com/morphSVG


Since you are already a Club GreenSock member you have access to MorphSVG when you download GSAP.

Hi ChrisZio,


Let me follow up your message here so others can see the answer, if you don't mind.


You asked for more info using MorphSVG on a DIV and how to toggle between two shapes when clicking on a DIV.


The info on the MorphSVG will be in the docs and on that link Carl has provided. As to "using MorphSVG on a div", well, that'll be generic JavaScript knowledge. It will be a matter of you wanting to do something and digging around to see what is available. Just like now, creating a toggle.


Here's a super bare bones example: 

See the Pen ZBmrXM by dipscom (@dipscom) on CodePen


Hope this helps. :)
