WinJS.UI.Animation.continuumForwardIn(incomingPage, incomingItemRoot, incomingItemContent).done( /* Your success and error handlers */ );


  • incomingPage
    Type: Object

    A single element to be scaled up that is the page root and does not contain the incoming item.

Return value

Type: Promise**

An object that returns when the animation has finished.


The incomingPage, incomingItemRoot, and incomingItemContent parameters of this function can be expressed in several ways:

  • As the special value "undefined", which means that the animation has no such target
  • As a single object
  • As a JavaScript array (possibly empty), in which each element of the array can be a single element or a JavaScript array of elements.
  • As a NodeList (for example, the result of querySelectorAll)
  • As an HTMLCollection
