Examples

The following example moves an ellipse along a triangular path. The example uses the PointAnimationUsingKeyFrames class to animate the Center property of an EllipseGeometry. This animation uses three key frames in the following manner:

  1. During the first half second, it uses an instance of the LinearPointKeyFrame class to move the ellipse along a path at a steady rate from its starting position. Linear key frames such as LinearPointKeyFrame create a smooth linear interpolation between values.
  2. During the end of the next half second, it uses an instance of the DiscretePointKeyFrame class to suddenly move the ellipse along the path to the next position. Discrete key frames like DiscretePointKeyFrame create sudden jumps between values.
  3. During the final two seconds, it uses an instance of the SplinePointKeyFrame class to move the ellipse back to its starting position. Spline key frames like SplinePointKeyFrame create a variable transition between values according to the values of the KeySpline property. In this example, the animation begins slowly and speeds up exponentially toward the end of the time segment.

Constructors

PointAnimationUsingKeyFrames()

Initializes a new instance of the PointAnimationUsingKeyFrames class.

Properties

AutoReverse

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the timeline plays in reverse after it completes a forward iteration.

(Inherited from Timeline)
BeginTime

Gets or sets the time at which this Timeline should begin.

(Inherited from Timeline)
Dispatcher

Gets the CoreDispatcher that this object is associated with. The CoreDispatcher represents a facility that can access the DependencyObject on the UI thread even if the code is initiated by a non-UI thread.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
Duration

Gets or sets the length of time for which this timeline plays, not counting repetitions.

(Inherited from Timeline)
EnableDependentAnimation

Gets or sets a value that declares whether animated properties that are considered dependent animations should be permitted to use this animation declaration.

EnableDependentAnimationProperty

Identifies the EnableDependentAnimation dependency property.

FillBehavior

Gets or sets a value that specifies how the animation behaves after it reaches the end of its active period.

(Inherited from Timeline)
KeyFrames

Gets the collection of PointKeyFrame objects that define the animation.

RepeatBehavior

Gets or sets the repeating behavior of this timeline.

(Inherited from Timeline)
SpeedRatio

Gets or sets the rate, relative to its parent, at which time progresses for this Timeline.

(Inherited from Timeline)

Methods

ClearValue(DependencyProperty)

Clears the local value of a dependency property.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
GetAnimationBaseValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns any base value established for a dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
GetValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
RegisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty, DependencyPropertyChangedCallback)

Registers a notification function for listening to changes to a specific DependencyProperty on this DependencyObject instance.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
SetValue(DependencyProperty, Object)

Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty, Int64)

Cancels a change notification that was previously registered by calling RegisterPropertyChangedCallback.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)

Events

Completed

Occurs when the Storyboard object has completed playing.

(Inherited from Timeline)
