Tween "isRunning" only on first step of sequence

Hi, I want to check whether a sequence of tweens has completed. However, the 'isRunning' flag only indicates whether the first step is 'running'. During step 2-4 in the example below it's set to false. It will be set to true again on the first step if the sequence loops.  

 

Is this how it's supposed to work? Is there a simple way to check whether the entire (non-looping) sequence has completed? 

var game = new Phaser.Game(640, 480, Phaser.CANVAS, '');var tween;var thing;var main_state = {    create: function() {        thing = {x: 10, y: 100 };        tween = game.add.tween(thing);        tween.to({x: 10, y: 300 }, 1000, Phaser.Easing.Bounce.Out);         tween.to({x: 200, y: 300 }, 1000);        tween.to({x: 200, y: 100 }, 1000);        tween.to({x: 10, y: 100 }, 1000);        // tween.loop();        tween.start();    },    render: function() {        game.debug.text('tween.isRunning: ' + tween.isRunning, thing.x, thing.y);    }};game.state.add('main', main_state);game.state.start('main');

you are not saving the result of the tween back into tween, so it generates a new one.

 

You could either chain the `to`s

tween = game.add.tween(thing) //see there is no ;.to({x: 10, y: 300 }, 1000, Phaser.Easing.Bounce.Out) //again no ;.to({x: 200, y: 300 }, 1000); //this 2 to's are chained

or save the result back in tween

tween = game.add.tween(thing);tween = tween.to({x: 10, y: 300 }, 1000, Phaser.Easing.Bounce.Out);tween = tween.to({x: 200, y: 300 }, 1000);

Thanks for your reply! Storing the return value in tween like above doesn't change anything, however. The behavior is the same (In Chrome and Firefox) with this code: 

 tween = game.add.tween(thing); tween = tween.to({x: 10, y: 300 }, 1000, Phaser.Easing.Bounce.Out);  tween = tween.to({x: 200, y: 300 }, 1000); tween = tween.to({x: 200, y: 100 }, 1000); tween = tween.to({x: 10, y: 100 }, 1000);

Anyway, am I missing something here? As I understand it, the .to() method doesn't return a new anything, it returns the 'tween' instance on which it was called, for chaining. So the var tween is referncing the same instance all along.

You could try testing the last child of the tween:

tween = game.add.tween(thing).to({x: 10, y: 300 }, 1000, Phaser.Easing.Bounce.Out).to({x: 200, y: 300 }, 1000).to({x: 200, y: 100 }, 1000).to({x: 10, y: 100 }, 1000);if (tween._lastChild.isRunning) {}

Or you can use the onComplete callback:

tween = game.add.tween(thing).to({x: 10, y: 300 }, 1000, Phaser.Easing.Bounce.Out).to({x: 200, y: 300 }, 1000).to({x: 200, y: 100 }, 1000).to({x: 10, y: 100 }, 1000);tween._lastChild.onComplete.add(tweenDone); //calls the tweenDone function when completed
