SizeAnimationBase Class

Abstract class that, when implemented, animates a Size value.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media.Animation
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
public abstract class SizeAnimationBase : AnimationTimeline
This class is abstract; see Inheritance Hierarchy for derived non-abstract classes usable in XAML.

Notes to Inheritors:

See the Custom Animations Overview for information about extending animation classes.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the derived SizeAnimationUsingKeyFrames class in Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML).

<!-- This example shows how to use the SizeAnimationUsingKeyFrames to animate the
size of an ArcSegment. -->
