Gets or sets the easing function applied to this animation.
Assembly: System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
<DoubleAnimation> <DoubleAnimation.EasingFunction> singleEasingFunction </DoubleAnimation.EasingFunction> </DoubleAnimation>
Property ValueType: System.Windows.Media.Animation.IEasingFunction
The easing function applied to this animation.
Dependency property identifier field: EasingFunctionProperty
Easing functions allow you to apply custom mathematical formulas to your animations. For example, you may want an object to realistically bounce or behave as though it were on a spring. You could use Key-Frame or even From/To/By animations to approximate these effects but it would take a significant amount of work and the animation would be less accurate than using a mathematical formula.
Besides creating your own custom easing function by implementing the IEasingFunction interface, you can use one of several easing functions provided by the runtime to create common effects. The Easing Function Gallery provides examples of available prefabricated easing functions.
