Animating repositions (XAML)

Use the reposition animations (RepositionThemeAnimation or RepositionThemeTransition) to move an element or elements into a new position.

Reposition animations in default Windows Runtime control behavior

Note Starting with Windows 8.1, theme transitions and visual state transitions may be disabled by the system, to honor the Ease of Access Center setting that enables a user to turn off unnecessary animations (when possible) in Windows apps. This affects RepositionThemeTransition and might also affect RepositionThemeAnimation if it's specifically used in a VisualTransition.
