is there a way to clear the existing draggable tween onStartDrag or onPress?

I get a small hickup when the draggable reaches the last snap-position and a user tries to drag past this position while there's already a draggable tween running. What happens is, it tweens to the previous snap-position. Setting the edgeResistance to 0 did not help, either.


So I'm trying to find out if there is a tween running and to clear that before the new Drag is initiated.


Thank you.

Hm, I played with your codepen briefly and couldn't replicate any odd glitches (I kept flicking and grabbing it before it finished tweening...no odd behavior from what I could tell). Draggable automatically kills any conflicting tweens internally - it takes care of all that for you so you don't have to worry about it.

Hi there, and sorry for the late reply, I wasn't alerted of your answers and busy with other stuff.

However, I can still replicate the error with both Safari 8 and Chrome 38 on MacOS 10.9 / 10.10. but also with Chrome and IE 10 running on an (emulated) Windows 7.

I made a little screencast: https://vimeo.com/109796603


It seems to happen when you drag while the previous tween is in it's 'back' movement (I'm using easeOut.Back).


Thank you

Hi ppdc  :)


it seems your bounds is cause of that behavior , so try this :


See the Pen rniFc by MAW (@MAW) on CodePen

  bounds:{minX:-1200, maxX:0},
  snap: function(endValue) {
  var step = 400;
  return Math.round( endValue / step) * step;
