Hi guys. This is most likely a newbie question. I am trying to stop an animation loop in progress for a view. What's the right way to do this?

view1 = new View({width:100, height:100, x:50, y:50});

view1.opacity = 0.5;

animation1 = new Animation ({
view: view1,
properties: {opacity: 1.0},
curve: "ease-in",
time: 300

animation2 = animation1.reverse()

animation1.on("end", animation2.start)
animation2.on("end", animation1.start)


view1.on("click", function() {

Calling animation1.stop() will stop the animation. 'view1.animateStop()' does nothing.

Thanks Josh. Had tried that earlier too but it doesn't seem to be the solution either. The page seems to go into an endless loop and freezes up.

Hmmm maybe we have a bug here. What about when you wrap the animationX.start function inside a function that checks if it needs to continue running with a variable?

Great! Thanks Koen.
