I'm generating dynamic divs inside a container every time the animations stops i'm generating new divs at some point i want to clear all the divs inside container i'm using 




but the animation is still running even i call 


TweenMax.killChildTweensOf( '#container' );


the animation is still running some of the code i'm using


function generate(item) {
TweenMax.to(item, duration, { delay, scale:range(end, "scale"), autoAlpha:range(end, "opacity"), rotation:getRandomInt(0, 180), ease:Linear.easeNone, generate, onCompleteParams:[items]});
for (var i = 0; i < 20; i++) {
generate( $("<div />", {id:"item" + i}).addClass("item").appendTo($('#container', this.el)));


any help on this?

Hello and Welcome to the GreenSock Forums!


Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Is there a way you can setup a limited

    See the Pen by pen (@pen) on CodePen

    or jsfiddle example so we can see your html, js, and css in context of your issue?
  • Where are you calling the killChildTweensOf() method in your code?
Also have you tried using the document.getDocumentById() to reference the ID on the element to kill the Tween.
TweenMax.killChildTweensOf( document.getElementById('container') );
Once you post your example code we can see where you are calling the killChildTweensOf() method, to track down why its not killing your animations.

what about using killTweensOf() and then run it in a for loop:




try this example:


See the Pen ukJmE by jonathan (@jonathan) on CodePen

var box = $('#box');
    var container = $("#container"),
        i, particle;
    for (i = 0; i < density; i++) {      
            TweenMax.killTweensOf( document.getElementById("particle" + i) );      

or you can target the .particle class


See the Pen wnrok by jonathan (@jonathan) on CodePen

var box = $('#box');
      TweenMax.killTweensOf( $('.particle') );

see if this helps ! :)

Thanks for providing the fiddle. You made a little mistake:


BAD - do not put # in getElementById()

TweenMax.killChildTweensOf( document.getElementById('#container') );


TweenMax.killChildTweensOf( document.getElementById('container') );

See the working version here

Thank you Carl !


I fixed the typo, hash in the getElementById(). Thanks for pointing that out, I guess my brain was still asleep when I posted my answer. I should have waited before I had my Thanksgiving dinner :D


Happy Thanksgiving!
