killAll backfires

Recommended Posts

hi Greensock


A few questions reagrding killAll()


1) Where did the last parameter go?

In Flash : killAll(complete:Boolean = false, tweens:Boolean = true, delayedCalls:Boolean = true):void


Docs : killAll(complete:Boolean = false, tweens:Boolean = true, delayedCalls:Boolean = true, timelines:Boolean = true):void


2) TimelineMaxs onComplete fires after TweenMax.killAll();???


package  {
    import flash.display.Sprite;
    import com.greensock.TweenMax;
    import com.greensock.TimelineMax;
    import com.greensock.plugins.*;
    import com.greensock.easing.*;
    import com.greensock.events.TweenEvent;
    import flash.display.MovieClip;
    public class Main extends Sprite {
        public function Main() {
            // constructor code
        private function Create() {
            var arr:Array = new Array();
            var Time:Number=2;
            for (var i:int=0; i<10; i++) {
                var m:MovieClip = new mc();        this.addChild(m);
                m.x = 40+(25*i);
            // solo tween
            var TM:MovieClip = new mc();        this.addChild;        TM.x=40;        TM.y=100;
            TweenMax.to(TM,6,{scale:2, ease:Linear.easeNone, onStartListener:ScaleTM, onComplete:CompleteTM });
            // timeline
            var TL:TimelineMax = new TimelineMax({ onComplete:CompleteTL });
            TL.insertMultiple(TweenMax.allTo(arr, Time, {scale:2,  ease:Linear.easeNone, onStartListener:ScaleTL }, Time-0.5), 0);
            // delayed kill
        private function ScaleTM(e:TweenEvent): void {
            trace('onStartListener: ScaleTM');
        private function CompleteTM() {
        private function ScaleTL(e:TweenEvent): void {
            trace('onStartListener: ScaleTL');
        private function CompleteTL() {
        private function Kill() {

trace is:

onStartListener: ScaleTM

onStartListener: ScaleTL

onStartListener: ScaleTL

onStartListener: ScaleTL



After killAll:

As U can see TimelineMax onComplete fires but TweenMax onComplete dosn't

I would have attached a nice example but I can't get the attach function to work, that goes for crome and IE. Have tried both jpg's and zipfiles

Sorry to hear you are having trouble with the code and the attachment options.

We'll look into both.


As for your code and the docs. I think there is a discrepancy in the version of the docs you are using and the version of the platform you are using.


v12 killAll() has the 4th param: timelines:



v11 killAll()



There are links to the docs in the left nav of the site for easy reference. 


I think you are using the old v11 codebase in which specifying the timeline parameter isn't available. Please confirm which version of the code you are using so that we can offer the proper advice.


I'd urge you to upgrade to v12 as there are a ton of new conveniences added to the timeline classes that allow for much more concise code.


for instance, this v11 code:



tl.insertMultiple(TweenMax.allTo(arr, 1, {scale:2}, 0.25), 2);


can be condensed in v12 to:



tl.staggerTo(arr, 1, {x:100}, 0.25, 2);

v12 staggerTo() docs http://api.greensock.com/as/com/greensock/TimelineLite.html#staggerTo()


insertMultiple() is still supported in v12, so you can still use your existing code.


Take a look at how concise and versatile the new TimelineLite.to() method is:



insert(), insertMultiple(), append() and appendMultiple() are no longer necessary.


You can see all the changes and new features of v12 here: http://www.greensock.com/v12/

Hi Carl
Thanks for reply. U are absolutely right about the version.

Example version - error

TweenMax.version : 11.698
TimelineMax.version : 1.698

New version - works perfectly
TweenMax.version : 12.0.2
TimelineMax.version : 12.0.2

I really don't know what have went wrong here. I have been updating on let's say montly basis, mainly from rightside of greensock. I have now triblechecked if there should be a mismatch in the zip-versions to download between as3 rightside and gsap leftside leading to github. I haven't found any mismatch so that leaves me with a strong need for coffee and a great deal of confusion... :)

So.... Sorry for taking your time, thanks for the great work and I'll try to pull myself together.....
