Carousel with TweenLite and JS only, cannot tween a null target

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone !

 

Hope you are fine.

 

I come to you because I am trying to make a carousel with images fading in / out.

I decided to use opacity (maybe it's not the best way to do it) and JS. I succeed to do something with JQuery but the performance were a disaster. Made my browser (chrome) crash.

 

Then I decided to make it with javascript and tried to realise something as light as possible (hard task).

 

But, when I thought my algorithm was good I was in front of 2 problems :

 

1) I don't succeed to make it infinite (not too hard to do)

2) I have an error during a loop : Cannot tween a null target.

 

I put some console.log everywhere at every stage but impossible to localise the moment where I am sending a null object to TweenLite. Dafuq

 

So, as you will see in my (short) codepen, am I missing something ?

 

 

I deeply thank you in advance for the time spend on my request.

The reason you developed a null object is that you allowed your counter (array index) to surpass the size of the the array.  So when you called TweenLite on slide[3], the object didn't exist.

 

Here's a version which uses the js modulus (%) operator, which useful for things that cycle.

Wow awesome, thank you very much guys !

 

@pixeldroid, I thought that if I have i < obj.length it assumes that if obj is a size of 5, i stop at 4. My bad and thx for the elementary lesson haha

 

And thank you again Diaco for this codepen :)
