Animating SVG line strokes with DrawSVG plugin

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm trying to animate an SVG <line> and a <circle> which are both dashed. What I need is the dashes to be shown one-by-one (staggered, I guess :-)) to make the line "drawn".


I've tried animating the strokeDasharray like so (where "secondStepDashedLine" is the <line> element) which didn't do anything really:

tlInitial.staggerFrom(secondStepDashedLine, 1, { strokeDasharray: 0 }, 1.5);

Is there any way of doing this? :-)


Thanks in advance.

Hi bomortensen :)


Welcome to the GreenSock forums.


The easiest way to animate a dashed line with the drawSVG plugin is by using a mask. I wrote about that technique in our ongoing 'SVG Gotchas' thread here:




Hopefully that helps a little bit.


Welcome aboard and thanks for being a Club GreenSock member.


Happy tweening.
