July 28, 2014

Represents an easing function that creates an animation that accelerates and/or decelerates using the formula f(t) = t3.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media.Animation
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: Not mapped to an xmlns.

public class CubicEase : EasingFunctionBase

The CubicEase type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodCubicEaseInitializes a new instance of the CubicEase class.
Top

  NameDescription
Public propertyDispatcherGets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public propertyEasingModeGets or sets a value that specifies how the animation interpolates. (Inherited from EasingFunctionBase.)
Top

  NameDescription
Public methodCheckAccessDetermines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodClearValueClears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodEaseTransforms normalized time to control the pace of an animation. (Inherited from EasingFunctionBase.)
Protected methodEaseInCoreProvides 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 methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetAnimationBaseValueReturns any base value established for a Windows Phone dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetValueReturns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodReadLocalValueReturns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSetValueSets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodToStringReturns 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.

CubicEase EasingMode graphs.

The formula used for this function is the following.

f(t) = t3

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 CubicEase easing function to a DoubleAnimation to create a decelerating animation.


<StackPanel x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="Transparent">
    <StackPanel.Resources>
        <Storyboard x:Name="myStoryboard">
            <DoubleAnimation From="0" To="200" Duration="00:00:3" 
                Storyboard.TargetName="myRectangle" 
                Storyboard.TargetProperty="Height">
                <DoubleAnimation.EasingFunction>
                    <CubicEase 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 void Mouse_Clicked(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
{
    myStoryboard.Begin();
}
