AddDeleteThemeTransition Class


Provides the animated transition behavior for when controls add or delete children of a panel. For example, if you have a collection of photos displayed in a Grid, you can associate this animation to the Grid so that when photos are added or deleted, the photos will animate in and out of view.

public ref class AddDeleteThemeTransition sealed : Transition
/// [Windows.Foundation.Metadata.Activatable(65536, "Microsoft.UI.Xaml.WinUIContract")]
/// [Windows.Foundation.Metadata.ContractVersion(Microsoft.UI.Xaml.WinUIContract, 65536)]
/// [Windows.Foundation.Metadata.MarshalingBehavior(Windows.Foundation.Metadata.MarshalingType.Agile)]
/// [Windows.Foundation.Metadata.Threading(Windows.Foundation.Metadata.ThreadingModel.Both)]

The following example shows how to use the AddDeleteThemeTransition to animate rectangles as they are added and deleted from a panel. Notice how the other child elements of the panel re-flow when one of them is removed.

<Button Content="Add Rectangle" Click="AddButton_Click"/>
<Button Content="Remove Rectangle" Click="RemoveButton_Click"/>

<ItemsControl Grid.Row="1" x:Name="rectangleItems">

            <!-- You use AddDeleteThemeTransition 
                 in panels like in a WrapGrid. -->
            <WrapGrid Height="400"/>

private void RemoveButton_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    if (rectangleItems.Items.Count > 0)

private void AddButton_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    Color rectColor = new Color();
    rectColor.R = 200;
    rectColor.A = 250;
    Rectangle myRectangle = new Rectangle();
    myRectangle.Fill = new SolidColorBrush(rectColor);
    myRectangle.Width = 100;
    myRectangle.Height = 100;
    myRectangle.Margin = new Thickness(10);
