let's me know if my tween is actively updating values (natch).


But is there a way to check if I am in a delay?  Please see my simple codepen for example.

Well, if you just want to know if the playhead is BEFORE that tween starts (which would, of course, be true if it's in the "delay" part of the tween), it should be as simple as:

if (animation.timeline.time() < animation.startTime()) {


If you literally want to know if the playhead is directly inside the delay (and not before it), that could also be done, like: 

if (animation.timeline.time() < animation.startTime() && animation.timeline.time() > animation.startTime() - animation.delay()) {


Does that answer your question?

Yes, thank you.  And i see how i can determine how far into the delay my tween is with these calls as well.
