Property Value

Type: System.String
The name of the VisualState to transition from.

The From property is optional. A VisualTransition can be restricted to apply to only certain states or it can be applied any time the control transitions between states. You restrict when a VisualTransition is applied by setting the To and From properties. The following table describes the levels of restriction from most restrictive to least restrictive.

You can have multiple VisualTransition objects in a VisualStateGroup that refer to the same state, but they will be used in the order that the table above specifies.

You can change this behavior by creating a new class that inherits from VisualStateManager and overriding the GoToStateCore method.

The following example creates two VisualTransition objects. When the control transitions from the Pressed state to the MouseOver state, the VisualTransition that has both From and To set is used. When the control transitions from a state that is not Pressed to the MouseOver state, the other state is used.


<!--Take one half second to trasition to the MouseOver state.-->
<VisualTransition To="MouseOver" 
                      GeneratedDuration="0:0:0.5" />

<!--Take one hundredth of a second to transition from the
    Pressed state to the MouseOver state.-->
<VisualTransition From="Pressed" To="MouseOver" 
                      GeneratedDuration="0:0:0.01" />
