Javascript – How to find out with jQuery if an element is being animated


I'm trying to move some elements on the page, and during the time the animation occurs, I want to have "overflow:hidden" applied to an elemnt, and "overflow" back to "auto" once the animation is completed.

I know jQuery has an utility function that determines whether some element is being animated but I can't find it anywhere in the docs

Best Answer

if( $(elem).is(':animated') ) {...}

More info:


    .css('overflow' ,'hidden')
    .animate({/*options*/}, function(){
        // Callback function
        $(this).css('overflow', 'auto');
