Thetype exposes the following members.
|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 Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|Duration||Gets or sets the length of time for which this timeline plays, not counting repetitions. (Inherited from Timeline.)|
|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 DoubleKeyFrame 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.)|
|CheckAccess||Determines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ClearValue||Clears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetAnimationBaseValue||Returns any base value established for a Silverlight dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetValue||Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ReadLocalValue||Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|SetValue||Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
A key frame animation's target values are defined by its KeyFrames property, which contains a collection of DoubleKeyFrame objects. Each DoubleKeyFrame 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.
When declaring a DoubleAnimationUsingKeyFrames in XAML, the order of the DoubleKeyFrame object elements is not significant, because the KeyTime controls the timing and therefore the order in which the key frames are executed. However, it is good markup style to keep the element order the same as the KeyTime sequence order.
The following example moves a rectangle across a screen. The example uses the DoubleAnimationUsingKeyFrames class to animate the X property of a TranslateTransform applied to a Rectangle. This animation uses three key frames in the following manner:
During the first three seconds, it uses an instance of the LinearDoubleKeyFrame class to move the rectangle along a path at a steady rate from its starting position to the 500 position. Linear key frames like LinearDoubleKeyFrame create a smooth linear transition between values.
At the end of the fourth second, it uses an instance of the DiscreteDoubleKeyFrame class to suddenly move the rectangle to the next position. Discrete key frames like DiscreteDoubleKeyFrame create sudden jumps between values. In this example, the rectangle is at the starting position and then suddenly appears at the 500 position.
In the final two seconds, it uses an instance of the SplineDoubleKeyFrame class to move the rectangle back to its starting position. Spline key frames like SplineDoubleKeyFrame create a variable transition between values according to the value of the KeySpline property. In this example, the rectangle begins by moving slowly and then speeds up exponentially toward the end of the time segment.
