#14636 assigned defect

Chained animation not so chained

Reported by: gaxweb Owned by: dylan
Priority: high Milestone: 1.15
Component: fx Version: 1.7.1
Keywords: fx, animation, chaining Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


A chained animation works fine on the first run. But after it has finished once, calling .start() on it again, the chained animation is not working right. It appears to only ever play the last entry in the array (found that out after switching them around) anymore.

Looking at the chain object... there is no handling for gotoStart and resetting _current to _animations[0]

		play: function(/*int?*/ delay, /*Boolean?*/ gotoStart){
			if(!this._current){ this._current = this._animations[this._index = 0]; }
			if(!gotoStart && this._current.status() == "playing"){ return this; }
			var beforeBegin = connect.connect(this._current, "beforeBegin", this, function(){
				onBegin = connect.connect(this._current, "onBegin", this, function(arg){
					this._fire("onBegin", arguments);
				onPlay = connect.connect(this._current, "onPlay", this, function(arg){
					this._fire("onPlay", arguments);
			this._onAnimateCtx = connect.connect(this._current, "onAnimate", this, "_onAnimate");
			this._onEndCtx = connect.connect(this._current, "onEnd", this, "_onEnd");, arguments);
			return this;

Believe this is enough to illustrate that is infact the problem:

updating _onEnd handler to reset _current and _index appears to suffice

Replying to ktiedt:

I've applied your concept to my code, and it fixed that problem. It became evident though, that dojo.fx.combine has the same problem, since my ani_dissemble animation didn't rewind itself either after running it for the first time. Adding the manual resets fixed it there as well.
