    functions with jquery animations, wait till one finsihes before the other starts

    the animation works perfectly if you open and close the same tab, but as soon as u start clicking on other tabs it bugs up a little
    this is because when u click on another tab, it closes the current one
    if i can make the opening tab wait until the current tab closes, i think the bug will be fixed, but i don't know how to do that
    the javascript is at the bottom of the page
    http://patrickallard.net63.net/
    and ill post it here for convenience sake
    Code:
    <script>
    
    //page dimentions
    var tabWidth=300;
    var tabHeight=document.getElementById("experienceshadow").clientHeight;
    var defaultSpeed=400;
    var numRows=2;
    
    //tab constructer
    function tab(divID,row,col)
    {
    	// jquery referencer
    	this.div=$('div#'+divID);
    	
    	// store dimentions of divs into variables
    	this.height=document.getElementById(divID).clientHeight;
    	
    	// row and column of tab iterates from 0
    	this.row=row;
    	this.col=col;
    	
    	// position of tabs based on row and column number
    	this.left=col*parseInt(tabWidth);
    	this.top=row*parseInt(tabHeight);
    
    	// when page initializes, all windows are open, before the initilization fucntion which closes them all
    	// thus we have to set all to open so initilization function sets them to false when closing them
    	this.open=true;
    	
    	// toggle boolian to determine if div is open or closed
    	this.toggle=toggle;
    	function toggle()
    	{
    		if(this.open==true)
    		{
    			this.open=false;
    		}
    		else
    		{
    			this.open=true;
    		}
    	}
    }
    
    // create tabs
    experience=new tab("experience",0,0);
    education=new tab("education",0,1);
    software=new tab("software",0,2);
    codesamples=new tab("codesamples",1,0);
    references=new tab("references",1,1);
    links=new tab("links",1,2);
    
    // jquery functions to open and close tabs
    (function() 
    {
    	// close a tab
    	$.fn.CloseHopin = function(currentTab) 
    	{
    		return $(this).animate
    		(

    Well, then this is what you have to do. On click of a (different) tab, close the one that’s open and then open the new one. The simplest way to check if a tab is open (and which one) is to assign a class to it (e. g. .open) and then address the tab with that class (e. g. $('.open').someFunction();.

    im already doing that

    maybe i can pass the fuction "tab.OpenHopen()" as a parameter to "tab.OpenToggle()"

    and then use .complete to call the correct "tab.OpenHopen()" method on the correct tab object inside the tab.OpenToggle() method
