DrawingContext.PushOpacity Method

Definition

Pushes the specified opacity setting onto the drawing context.

Overloads

PushOpacity(Double)

Pushes the specified opacity setting onto the drawing context.

PushOpacity(Double, AnimationClock)

Pushes the specified opacity setting onto the drawing context and applies the specified animation clock.

PushOpacity(Double)

Pushes the specified opacity setting onto the drawing context.

public:
 abstract void PushOpacity(double opacity);
public abstract void PushOpacity (double opacity);
abstract member PushOpacity : double -> unit
Public MustOverride Sub PushOpacity (opacity As Double)

Parameters

opacity
Double

The opacity factor to apply to subsequent drawing commands. This factor is cumulative with previous PushOpacity(Double) operations.

Remarks

The opacity is blended into all subsequent drawing commands until it is removed by the Pop command.

PushOpacity(Double, AnimationClock)

Pushes the specified opacity setting onto the drawing context and applies the specified animation clock.

public:
 abstract void PushOpacity(double opacity, System::Windows::Media::Animation::AnimationClock ^ opacityAnimations);
public abstract void PushOpacity (double opacity, System.Windows.Media.Animation.AnimationClock opacityAnimations);
abstract member PushOpacity : double * System.Windows.Media.Animation.AnimationClock -> unit
Public MustOverride Sub PushOpacity (opacity As Double, opacityAnimations As AnimationClock)

Parameters

opacity
Double

The opacity factor to apply to subsequent drawing commands. This factor is cumulative with previous PushOpacity(Double) operations.

opacityAnimations
AnimationClock

The clock with which to animate the opacity value, or null for no animation. This clock must be created from an AnimationTimeline that can animate Double values.

Remarks

The opacity is blended into all subsequent drawing commands until it is removed by the Pop command.
