ExponentialEase Class

Represents an easing function that creates an animation that accelerates and/or decelerates using an exponential formula (see remarks).

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

  NameDescription
Public propertySupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneDispatcherGets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public propertySupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneEasingModeGets or sets a value that specifies how the animation interpolates. (Inherited from EasingFunctionBase.)
Public propertySupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneExponentGets or sets the exponent used to determine the interpolation of the animation.

  NameDescription
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneCheckAccessDetermines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneClearValueClears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneEaseTransforms normalized time to control the pace of an animation. (Inherited from EasingFunctionBase.)
Protected methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneEaseInCoreProvides the logic portion of the easing function that you can override to produce the EaseIn mode of the custom easing function. (Overrides EasingFunctionBase.EaseInCore(Double).)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneGetAnimationBaseValueReturns any base value established for a Silverlight dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneGetValueReturns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneReadLocalValueReturns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneSetValueSets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

You can control whether the animation accelerates, decelerates or both by specifying the EasingMode. The following graph demonstrates the different values of EasingMode where f(t) represents the animation progress and t represents time.

ExponentialEase graphs of different easingmodes.

The formula used for this function is the following.

Mathematical formula for ExponentialEase

Using the formula above, the following graph illustrates the effect of several different values for the Exponent property:

Different values for the Exponent property.

There are several other easing functions besides ExponentialEase which you can explore using the following sample.

Run this sample

In addition to using the easing functions included in the run-time, you can create your own custom easing functions by inheriting from EasingFunctionBase.

The following example applies a ExponentialEase easing function to a DoubleAnimation to create a decelerating animation.

Run this sample


<StackPanel x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
    <StackPanel.Resources>
        <Storyboard x:Name="myStoryboard">
            <DoubleAnimation From="30" To="200" Duration="00:00:3" 
                Storyboard.TargetName="myRectangle" 
                Storyboard.TargetProperty="Height">
                <DoubleAnimation.EasingFunction>
                    <ExponentialEase Exponent="6" EasingMode="EaseOut"/>
                </DoubleAnimation.EasingFunction>
            </DoubleAnimation>
        </Storyboard>
    </StackPanel.Resources>

    <Rectangle x:Name="myRectangle" MouseLeftButtonDown="Mouse_Clicked" 
     Fill="Blue" Width="200" Height="30" />

</StackPanel>



' When the user clicks the rectangle, the animation
' begins. 
Private Sub Mouse_Clicked(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As MouseEventArgs)
    myStoryboard.Begin()
End Sub
