RectAnimation.From Property

Gets or sets the animation's starting value.

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

member From : Nullable<Rect> with get, set
<object>  <object.From>    <Rect />  </object.From></object>
<object From="Rect"/>- or -<object From="{x:Null Markup Extension}"/>

Property Value

Type: System.Nullable(Rect)
The starting value of the animation. The default is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Identifier field

FromProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

The following table summarizes how the From, To, and By properties may be used together or separately to determine an animation's target values.

Properties specified

Resulting behavior

From

The animation progresses from the value specified by the From property to the base value of the property being animated or to a previous animation's output value, depending on how the previous animation is configured.

From and To

The animation progresses from the value specified by the From property to the value specified by the To property.

From and By

The animation progresses from the value specified by the From property to the value specified by the sum of the From and By properties.

To

The animation progresses from the animated property's base value or a previous animation's output value to the value specified by the To property.

By

The animation progresses from the base value of the property being animated or a previous animation's output value to the sum of that value and the value specified by the By property.

NoteNote

If you set both the To and By properties, the To property takes precedence and the By property is ignored.

To use other interpolation methods or animate between more than two target values, use a RectAnimationUsingKeyFrames object.

This example shows how to animate changes to the size and position of a rectangle.

The following example uses an instance of the RectAnimation class to animate the Rect property of a RectangleGeometry, which animates changes to the size and position of the rectangle.

How to: Control an Animation using From, To, and ByA "From/To/By" or "basic animation" creates a transition between two target values (see Animation Overview for an introduction to different types of animations). To set the target values of a basic animation, use its From, To, and By properties. The following table summarizes how the From, To, and By properties may be used together or separately to determine an animation's target values.
