A key frame animation's target values are defined by its KeyFrames property, which contains a collection of ColorKeyFrame objects. Each ColorKeyFrame defines a segment of the animation with its own target Value and KeyTime. When the animation runs, it progresses from one key value to the next at the specified key times.
Unlike a ColorAnimation, a ColorAnimationUsingKeyFrames can have more than two of target values. You can also control the interpolation method of individual ColorKeyFrame segments.
The following example uses the ColorAnimationUsingKeyFrames class to animate the Color property of a SolidColorBrush. This animation uses three key frames in the following manner:
During the first two seconds, uses an instance of the LinearColorKeyFrame class to gradually change the color from green to red. Linear key frames like LinearColorKeyFrame create a smooth linear transition between values.
During the end of the next half second, uses an instance of the DiscreteColorKeyFrame class to quickly change the color from red to yellow. Discrete key frames like DiscreteColorKeyFrame create sudden changes between values, that is, the color change in this part of the animation occurs quickly and is not subtle.
During the final two seconds, uses an instance of the SplineColorKeyFrame class to change the color again—this time from yellow back to green. Spline key frames like SplineColorKeyFrame create a variable transition between values according to the values of the KeySpline property. In this example, the change in color begins slowly and speeds up exponentially toward the end of the time segment.
