Page Transform timeline not reversing when menu open

Recommended Posts

Hi, so here is the idea for what I want to do.

 

- Click on the blue square in upper right and the page transform occurs revealing menu underneath.

 

- Click on the red square when the menu is open, and another page transform occurs closing the menu and revealing page again

 

I am having difficulty understanding what is going on here. I am only using one timeline and when I click on the red square the timeline stalls out . Not sure why?

 

Here is an example of the open and close effect occuring automatically without the click triggering the event.

from what I can tell, you shouldn't be building your timeline inside menuRevealHideAnimation(). Notice you call that function twice

menuRevealHideAnimation($("#closeMenuContainer"));
menuRevealHideAnimation($("#openMenuContainer"));

which creates two timelines on the same element.

 

try this:

Admittedly, I am not a JQuery or JavaScript expert, but would like to become one eventually. Why is it that when I break up this solution into index.html, script.js, style.css files it stops working. Feeling very helpless right now.

 

 
//index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>

<head>

</html>
 
//script.js
initMenuRevealAnimation();
 
function initMenuRevealAnimation() {
menuRevealHideAnimation($("#closeMenuContainer"));
menuRevealHideAnimation($("#openMenuContainer"));
}
 
 
var tl = new TimelineMax({paused:true});
tl.set('.pageContentContainer', { perspective: "1200px" });
tl.set('#homePageContent', { transformOrigin: "100% 50%"});
tl.set(".site", {pointerEvents: "auto"});
tl.to('.pageContent', 0.5, {opacity: 0.5, scale: 0.7,  rotationY: -60, ease: Back.easeInOut },0)

function menuRevealHideAnimation(el) {
 
 
$(el).on("click", function() {
if(!$("#mainMenu").hasClass("open")) {
openMenu();
$("#mainMenu").addClass("open");
} else {
closeMenu();
$("#mainMenu").removeClass("open");
}
})
 
function openMenu() {
tl.play();
}
 
function closeMenu() {
tl.reverse();
}
}

variable scope problem? something that is recognized while in codpen but not in in local?

First step is to open the javascript console and look for errors: https://developer.chrome.com/devtools/docs/console

 

It could be a single mis-typed character. Unfortunately, it would be pretty time consuming to analyze all that code you pasted. Much better to provide a URL for us to see.

 

My recommendation is to start with something that works and build backwards slowly.

In case you haven't already, start by exporting a zip of the working codepen demo and then add dependencies and move things around as needed. test after each step.  To export a zip of a pen hit the "export" button in the lower right corner: http://prntscr.com/9t1akn

it was fixed when I put the external javascript into my window.load in the index.html. Now this is not necessarily where I want to keep it, but I am trying to understand my the script.js wasn't fully processed by the time it got inside the following:

 

$(window).load(function() {
 
        init();
 
        function init() {
             initMenuRevealAnimation();
        }
});

I understand Carl. I tried to make this initial codepen as reduced as possible because I know you guys deal with a lot of analysis of other people's code. Not one of my forte's. I moved the external script to the end of the DOM and it worked fine.
