Hey guys,


I want to pause the timeline when it's completed.


tl = new TimelineMax({repeat: -1, paused: true});
        .to(dummy, 0.5, {x: '+=60', ease:Power3.easeOut}, 0.5)
        .to(dummy, 0.5, {x: '-=60', ease:Power3.easeOut}, 1.5)


The first addPause() works, the one at the end doesn't effect the timeline at all.


The timeline is paused on load, a click on a button starts it. It pauses on the first addPause, a buttons starts it again but it doesn't pause on the last addPause.


I hope it's somehow clear what I'm trying to achieve :)


I'm thankful for any help.

Okay I don't know if this is the right way to do it, but I solved the problem via a simple function:


function pauseLeft() {

var dummy = document.getElementById('dummy');
    tl = new TimelineMax({repeat: -1, paused: true});
        .to(dummy, 0.5, {x: '+=60', ease:Power3.easeOut, onComplete:pauseLeft}, 0.5)
        .to(dummy, 0.5, {x: '-=60', ease:Power3.easeOut, onComplete:pauseLeft}, 1.5);



Thanks anyway :)

Hi hallibus,


Welcome to GreenSock Forums.


This could be an alternative:

Thanks for pointing that out. This should be fixed in 1.20.1 (out now).
