  • Interrupt expanding/collapsing animation #32101


    Hi jqWidgets-Team,

    I want to use the expander but it should expand on mouseenter and collapse on mouseleave. This is as I see no problem and can be done by: $(‘jqxExpander’).mouseenter() and .mouseleave(). But haveing several expander of this type to to another gliding with the mouse over the widgets seems to lead to a missbehaviour. The current expander under the mouse pointer is expanded correct but sometimes it does not react on the mouseleave event. I think this is because the animation is ongoing while the mouseleave event is fired. Is there any way to interrupt the animation and trigger the collapsing? Or how can I build a queue so after expanding fully the expander which the mouse has already left collapse again?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Stephan,

    Here is how to achieve this functionality:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="../../jqwidgets/styles/jqx.base.css" type="text/css" />
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../../scripts/gettheme.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../../scripts/jquery-1.10.2.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../../jqwidgets/jqxcore.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../../jqwidgets/jqxexpander.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {
    // Create jqxExpander
    var theme = "";
    $("#jqxExpander").jqxExpander({ width: '350px', theme: theme });
    var left = false;
    $("#jqxExpander").mouseenter(function () {
    left = false;
    $("#jqxExpander").mouseleave(function () {
    left = true;
    $('#jqxExpander').on('expanded', function () {
    if (left == true) {
    <body class='default'>
    <div id='jqxWidget' style="float: left;">
    <div id='jqxExpander'>
