Clip animation does not work on centered elements (margin: 0 auto)

Reported by: ryanwheale Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.9.0
Component: ui.effects.* (individual effect) Version: 1.8.5
Keywords: clip effect centered div Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

#myDiv { width:500px; margin:0 auto; }

When you animate an element with this syntax:


... the behavior is not as expected.

Chrome: expands from far left instead of center

FF, IE7, IE8: expands from left, then jumps to center

I have attached my fix. Take note of the new variable "centered". My fix works for my current project, but has not gone through a lot of testing. If I can clean it up, I will post back here.

Just making some notes on what I have seen so far:

Some browsers return the calculated margins, as opposed to "auto". In these situations, the effect degrades to it's previous behavior. So far, Opera 10.6 is the only browser I have seen that is returning calculated margins.
