Element jumps to wrong position after "scale" effect with origin: ['middle','center'] parameter

Reported by: marteadrian Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.9.0
Component: ui.effects.* (individual effect) Version: 1.7
Keywords: scale effect ui Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


  $('.scale').click(function() {
                   {percent:200, origin: ['middle','center']}, 

the element resizes well, but after the transition (and before the

callback function executes) the element jumps back to it's original

(unresized) position. (the left and top position changed because of

the origin [middle,center] parameter).

You can see an example here:

can confirm this; I would recommend bumping severity, as currently it's impossible to enlarge stuff with non top/left gravity

A temporary fix I have found is to remove the 'restore' function call after the effect has been performed.

Remove this block of code from the end of the Scale function:

c.effects.restore(a, n?e:g);

A top and left css property is also added to the element. Simply place some jquery css on the effect callback to prevent this:

$('#element').css('top', '0').css('left', '0');

Here is a clean patch for this issue.

I add new top and left in object.

@dmack It was fixed, but it regressed.
