Problem with animating/reseting width

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have done a super simple typewriter effect,  which works as intended, excerpt when u interrupt and restart it. The width of each char will just be correct until the previous reset point. Check the Pen to understand. If you let the whole timeline run before clicking the button, everything is fine, however, clicking it in the middle of the animation, messes up the next.

please don't post private pens. we can't fork them.

 

is there a reason you don't just restart() the timeline?

Please try this code

const btn = document.querySelector('.js-play')
const split = new SplitText('.js-typewriter', { type: 'lines, words, chars' })

let tl = new TimelineLite({ paused: true })
  
  tl.staggerFrom(split.chars, 0.1, {
    width: 0,
    alpha: 0,
    ease: SteppedEase.config(1)
  }, 0.1)
  
function animate() {
  tl.restart();
}

btn.addEventListener('click', animate)

 

 

also, the TextPlugin basically does all that for you with even less code:
