Using Cufón.js with jCarousel (How to Fix)

Posted: July 2nd, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Tips and Tricks | Tags: , , , | 2 Comments »

Using Cufón with jQuery jCarousel, I get a bug: after the first rotation my texts (powered by Cufon javascript) disappear – and the rest of slide is shown. The Carousel has three items and rotates them circularly. I find the way to fix it via refreshing Cufón:

  1. function carouselAnimateStart()
  2.             {
  3.                 Cufon.refresh();
  4.             }

and

  1. jQuery(document).ready(function () {
  2.                 jQuery('#mycarousel').jcarousel({
  3.                     auto: 3,
  4.                     scroll: 1,
  5.                     wrap: 'circular',
  6.                     initCallback: mycarousel_initCallback,
  7.                     itemVisibleOutCallback:
  8.                     {
  9.                         onBeforeAnimation: carouselAnimateStart
  10.                     }
  11.                 });

Note: using such fix leaks the memory (because your script is refreshed every time).

    No, it works for IE as well. I just see a weak point in this method as memory leaks – please see the note.
