Position of items are not the same when dragging Multiple Items with autoscroll

Go to solution Solved by GreenSock,

Hi, i am trying to drag multiple items with autoscroll. In my case, two items are in different container therefore event listener 'scroll' is used to change the scrollLeft of another container. But i found that the one without dragging will move a little bit forward when it is scrolling. It will be correct after scrolling. Is there any problem in my code?

Hi kichun,


I've read your questions several times, but I'm still unsure what you're asking. Everything looks fine to me except your demo is using old versions of GSAP.

(animation is paused to show that boxes are not aligned while autoscrolling)


this is what I'm seeing. I'm guessing your scroll eventlisteners are firing at a totally different rate than Draggable's onUpdate. 


I doubt this is a Draggable issue as Draggable is doing exactly what it should in autoscrolling the parent of the thing you are dragging.

Draggable updates with GSAP's ticker, which uses request animation frame, so it's going to be slightly delayed compared to the scroll listeners.

oh i see, is there any listener (something like onDrag) can do the updating currently during autoscroll?

I think the main problem is that when it does an "autoScroll", you're not necessarily dragging the element, thus onDrag isn't fired. That's not a bug. You could just tap into GSAP's ticker and run your update on each tick WHILE it's pressed like this:

There are several other ways you could do it; this is just one. 


Does that help?
