Hello,
I just started learning jquery and this problem baffles me
I have divs in a container and when the mouse is over them it resizes the div and shifts the divs in front by a certain offset.
on mouseout it shifts the div by subtracting from that offset. This is the code if you are kind enough to look at it:



<html>
<head>
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js"></script>

<script language="JavaScript1.2">

function resize(obj)
{
shift(parseInt(obj.id[obj.id.length-1]));
$("#"+obj.id).height("100px").width("100px") ;

}

function shift(id)
{
for(var i=id+1;i<=4;i++)
{
$("#hello"+i).stop().animate({"left":"+=60px"},1000) ;
}
}

function shrink(obj)
{
$("#"+obj.id).height("64px").width("48px") ;
reshrink(parseInt(obj.id[obj.id.length-1]));

}
function reshrink(id)
{
document.getElementById('testvalue').innerHTML+=document.getElementById("hello2").style.left ;

for(var i=id+1;i<=4;i++)
{
$("#hello"+i).stop().animate({"left":"-=60px"},1000) ;
}

document.getElementById('testvalue').innerHTML+=document.getElementById("hello2").style.left ;
}
</script>
</head>

<body>

<h1>Hello World!</h1>
<div id="formWrapper" style="height:180;width:530;">

<div id="wrapper" style="position:relative;bottom:20px;width:460px;left:40px;height:160px;background-color:green;overflow:auto;" ">

<div id="hello1" style="position:absolute;left:0px;height:64px;bottom:0px;width:48px; background-color:black;color:white;" onmouseover="resize(this);" onmouseout="shrink(this)"></div>
<div id="hello2" style="position:absolute;left:49px;bottom:0px;height:64px;width:48px; background-color:maroon;color:white;" onmouseover="resize(this);" onmouseout="shrink(this)"></div>
<div id="hello3" style="position:absolute;left:98px;bottom:0px;height:64px;width:48px; background-color:brown;color:white;" onmouseover="resize(this);" onmouseout="shrink(this)"></div>
<div id="hello4" style="position:absolute;left:147px;bottom:0px;height:64px;width:48px; background-color:white;color:white;" onmouseover="resize(this);" onmouseout="shrink(this)"></div>

</div>

</div>

<div id="testvalue" style="position:absolute;top:390px;background-color:yellow;height:100px;width:400px;">

</div>

</body>
</html>



It is quite simple really, nothing too complicated in it..
What I found is that when the mouseover and out is rapid or maybe the animation isn't complete..the divs change more than the offset and eventually it overlaps! :'(
Can someone please suggest how to solve this problem?
And thanks :).

EDIT:
To test rapidly move mouse over the first div..

I have an idea how to solve problem
It IS because the animation hasn't completed..hence I am moving the div too early.
I just don't know how to tell the jquery to finish the animation before doing the what mouseover wants.
so maybe something



if(animationready)
do reshrink

I too am pretty new to jQuery, but here's a quick crack I took at it. The only thing I couldn't manage was keeping the divs at the very bottom of their container.

If you can, try to use absolute values for the movement then put
.clearQueue().stop()

before any animation
