    Hey Guys i need a solution for the following problem

    i have a javascript file which i use to display a modal box using jQuery doing all the animation effects and stuff

    right after all the animation effects i have a javascript statement

    something like this


    This is just an example……

    ma problem now is the the second statement executes before animation is completed
    is there any why i could finish the animation and then make the javascript to execute ???


    You can use the built-in callback function to achieve this. Animate takes a total of four arguments: animate( params, [duration], [easing], [callback] ). The most popular are the first two, ‘params’ and ‘duration’ (you’ve used these as well). You can add a callback function that will execute upon completion of your animation. So the new code would be like this:

    left : w,
    top : h,
    width : modalW,
    height : modalH
    //duration, easing and callback are all optional,
    //so you can just leave out one and use another like I did above (‘easing’ was left out)

    That should do the trick. You might also want to have a look at jQuery thickbox, which is a very nice modal box plugin developed by Cody Lindley – member of the jQuery team.


    Thanks for the reply Hugo …i realised it minutes before i saw this reply……anyways i appreciate ur response….thanks
