This example shows how to control a Storyboard after it starts. To start a Storyboard by using XAML, use BeginStoryboard, which distributes the animations to the objects and properties they animate and then starts the storyboard. If you give BeginStoryboard a name by specifying its Name property, you make it a controllable storyboard. You can then interactively control the storyboard after it starts.

Use the following storyboard actions together with EventTrigger objects to control a storyboard.

The following example uses controllable storyboard actions to interactively control a storyboard.

Note: To see an example of controlling a storyboard by using code, see How to: Control a Storyboard After It Starts.
