Mouse cursor animation frozen on scroll

Recommended Posts

Hello ! 
I use this resource and it works pretty good but the hover animation freezes on scroll.

Any Idea to solve this ?

Hey Jeanlat and welcome to the GreenSock forums.


Mouse events are purposefully suppressed by most browsers when the user is scrolling. Otherwise you'd have a lot of events firing for elements that usually aren't meant to be hovered. I would likely reverse the animation on scroll.

Thank you for your answer !

I understand, isn't it possible to force specific mouse event ?

I seem to remember another thread that asked that question but I can't seem to find it right now. Maybe someone else can step in and link to it.


IIRC, it's possible but not the most performant to do so (you'd have to calculate elementsFromPoint for each tick of the scroll and manually fire any event listeners for those elements). As I said before I recommend just reversing the animation on scroll.
