GSAP Custom Checkbox Issue

Go to solution Solved by akapowl,

Recommended Posts

I have the animation working on one checkbox but whene i add another both play. This should be simple to resolve but i can't figure it out.

I am trying to have it so the document is looked over for the checkboxes on the page an invoke the animation on individual checkboxes.

Hey @james182


You are making one of the most common GSAP mistakes.

You are using a general selector, when instead you would want to loop over each item you want to animate individually.

What you also don't want to do is listen on the document for any change on any input-element, but listen to that specific's element's state instead. Does this make sense?


Here is an example of how to do that (with jquery, since you are using it).

Also, your check for the checked-state of those checkboxes didn't quite seem to work, so just for this example, I set your timeline to reversed and check for the reversed state of the timeline with regard to animating it instead.


Hope this helps.
