I'm trying to use DrawSVG for the external border .

As you can see I have 4 blocks that appear one by one .

What I'd like to do is : 

As soon as the first block appears a border should start and complete its path as the last block appears


I hope I'm clear what I want  :)

Thank you for the nice demo.


The main problem was that you gave your SVG an id of border but you really want a <rect> inside the SVG to have that ID so that DrawSVG can animate it.



var tl = new TimelineMax();
 tl.to("#lay1",2,{opacity:1 });
 tl.to("#lay2",2,{opacity:1 });
 tl.to("#lay3",2,{opacity:1 });
 tl.to("#lay4",2,{opacity:1 });
//create a tween that has a duration the same as the timeline and put it at a time of 0
 tl.fromTo("#border", tl.duration(), {drawSVG:0}, {drawSVG:"100%"}, 0);
