Animations in XAML
page 1 of 9
Published: 25 Oct 2006
Animations are an important aspect of XAML and Windows Presentation Foundation that show their power to all developers who have written an animation for older graphic user interfaces. In XAML, animations are easy to declare and customize. In this article Keyvan introduces animations in XAML and walks through the fundamentals of declaring different types of animations.

If you have worked with old (for now, it is better to say "current") graphic engines to design a dynamic animation for your user interface, surely you know it can be a time consuming task which needs hard coding.

The next generation of user interfaces, which comes with Windows Vista and Windows Presentation Foundation and uses XAML in its core, has made this process much easier.

You can use XAML codes to write various types of animations in a short time and enjoy them.

In this article I want to introduce you to animations in XAML; it is a great markup language for designing your UI in Windows Vista and .NET 3.0.  My primary goal is to walk through common animation types.  The way to declare and use animations has changed a bit during the development of XAML and Windows Presentation Foundation in the last year, but it seems to be stable now.

Before reading this article, note that I will try to show animation results in a few snapshots, but they cannot represent the actual output.  The best way to see the output of examples is to run them yourself.

Could you please post information/Code about making flyouts in XAML. When we click a button we should be able to get a flyout and then when we click anywhere on the flyout, it should close.
