Hi,

 

I am new to GSAP (and my English is bad, sorry).

 

Is there any way how to stop tween on defined point (for example on progress = 0.5), pause it for few seconds and then resume playing?

 

For example, I have this tween:

 

var tw = TweenMax.to($("#myID"), 1, {top:0} );

 

I need this tween stop after 0.5 seconds (this is middle of the tween) for 10 seconds and after this pause resume playing.

 

Thanks

 

Alex

A timeline would be perfect for this:

var tw = new TimelineLite();
    tw.to("myID", 1, { top:100 })
      .addPause(0.5, resumeTimeline, [10]);


function resumeTimeline(seconds) {
    TweenLite.delayedCall(seconds, this.resume, null, this);
}
or even

var tw = new TimelineLite();
    tw.to("myID", 1, {top:100} )
      .addPause(0.5, TweenLite.delayedCall, [10, tw.resume, null, tw]);

I usually prefer timelines for this too, as Jamie suggested, but another option would be to use delayedCalls:

var tween = TweenLite.to("#myID", 1, {top:100});

TweenLite.delayedCall(0.5, function() {
    tween.pause();
    TweenLite.delayedCall(10, function() {
        tween.resume();
    });
});

There are several other ways to do it too, but I don't want to confuse things :)
