Storyboard.Begin Method (FrameworkContentElement, HandoffBehavior)

Applies the animations associated with this Storyboard to their targets and initiates them, using the specified HandoffBehavior.

Namespace: System.Windows.Media.Animation
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in presentationframework.dll)

public void Begin (
	FrameworkContentElement containingObject,
	HandoffBehavior handoffBehavior
)
public void Begin (
	FrameworkContentElement containingObject, 
	HandoffBehavior handoffBehavior
)
public function Begin (
	containingObject : FrameworkContentElement, 
	handoffBehavior : HandoffBehavior
)
You cannot use methods in XAML.

Parameters

containingObject

An object contained within the same name scope as the targets of this storyboard's animations. Animations without a TargetName will be applied to containingObject.

handoffBehavior

The behavior the new animation should use to interact with any current animations.

The following example uses the SnapshotAndReplace HandoffBehavior to animate when the user left-clicks, and the Compose HandoffBehavior when the user right-clicks.

    This example shows how to animate
    a FrameworkContentElement with a storyboard.
