Swapping Img Src with Timeline // TweenMax

Recommended Posts

I have used GSAP for a few years now, after being introduced to it through college. I am a big fan and want to use it for animating a sequence in my portfolio site. I am testing a simple concept to see if I can make a much more complex sequence


What I am trying to do is change an image at a specific point in the Timeline sequence - essentially changing the "src" path of the image.


I have spent an hour or two now scouring the forums and searching online for a solution, and the only seemingly related issues are much more complex. I am aware of the possibility of using jQuery and the "attr" , however ideally I would like to keep it as simple as possible, and believe there should be a way to simply change the source of the image as a 'src' css property.


I have tried it without the CSS Plugin, as well as spelling out the word. I have also ran a check on the image source to make sure it isn't a file-path issue.


Here is the code as of now:



    <img src="images/7.gif" id="seven">


    var seven = document.querySelector("#seven");     
    var tl = new TimelineMax({delay: 2, repeat: 2, repeatDelay: 2});

    window.onload = function() {
        tl.from(seven, 0.5, {autoAlpha: 0.5, x: +100})
            .to(seven, 0.1, {y: + 100, x: + 300})
            .to(seven, 0.4, {css:{src: "images/7777777.png"}});


            var pathSource = String(seven.src);

Hi DRock  :)


pls try like this :

var tl = new TimeLineMax()

//.add( function(){ seven.src="images/7777777.png"; })

Thanks Diaco, this was helpful in understanding the syntax and the right approach. Unlike my reply, I do appreciate the quick response time.


Both approaches work and it was difficult to find an example to decipher that wasn't significantly more complex.
