Hi Court,

 

Sure, but there are some things you missed.

 

TimelineLite does not have the repeat method, for that you should use TimelineMax. Also you forgot to wrap the repeat var between curly brackets. The vars passed to the constructor is an object, so it has be in that particular syntax.

 

Finally the add() method has a position parameter, which allows you to set the time or label you want that particular tween to be played. This could be absolute or relative, please take a look at the API reference to find out more.

 

Your code should be like this:

function group() {
  var tl = new TimelineMax({repeat:-1});
  var time = 2.5;
  var redBox = DocById("redBox");
  var blueBox = DocById("blueBox");

  //after the tween a zero value is added indicating that this particular
  //tween should start at the time 0
  tl.add(TweenLite.to(redBox, time, {left:  "50px", top: "0px", ease:"Linear.easeNone" }),0);
  tl.add(TweenLite.to(blueBox, time, {left:  "50px", top: "0px", ease:"Linear.easeNone" }),0);
}

function DocById(id) {
  return document.getElementById(id);
}

group();

Success, thanks!

Yup, Rodrigo is exactly right.

 

In addition, you can make your code more concise by using the to() method instead of add()

 

tl.to(redBox, time, {left:50, top:0, ease:Linear.easeNone})
  .to(blueBox, time, {left:50, top:0, ease:Linear.easeNone},0);

.to() creates a TweenLite tween. add() is useful for adding TweenMax tweens (if you need repeating or other features of TweenMax tweens), timelines, labels or callbacks.
