The LinearPointKeyFrame class has these types of members:
The LinearPointKeyFrame class has these constructors.
|LinearPointKeyFrame||Initializes a new instance of the LinearPointKeyFrame class.|
The LinearPointKeyFrame class has these methods. It also inherits methods from the Object class.
|ClearValue||Clears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject)|
|GetAnimationBaseValue||Returns any base value established for a dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject)|
|GetValue||Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject)|
|ReadLocalValue||Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject)|
|SetValue||Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject)|
The LinearPointKeyFrame class has these properties.
|Read-only||Gets the CoreDispatcher that this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject)|
|Read/write||Gets or sets the time at which the key frame's target Value should be reached. (Inherited from PointKeyFrame)|
|Read/write||Gets or sets the key frame's target value. (Inherited from PointKeyFrame)|
Key-frame animations permit more than one target value that is reached at a point along the animation timeline. In other words each key frame can specify a different intermediate value, and the last key frame reached is the final animation value. By specifying multiple values to animate, you can make more complex animations. You'd typically have at least two keyframes in a PointAnimationUsingKeyFrames with LinearPointKeyFrame, otherwise a PointAnimation would have been simpler.

This XAML example moves an ellipse along a triangular path. The example uses the PointAnimationUsingKeyFrames class to animate the Center property of an EllipseGeometry. This animation uses three key frames in the following manner:
During the first half second, it uses an instance of the LinearPointKeyFrame class to move the ellipse along a path at a steady rate from its starting position. Linear key frames such as LinearPointKeyFrame create a smooth linear interpolation between values.
During the end of the next half second, it uses an instance of the DiscretePointKeyFrame class to suddenly move the ellipse along the path to the next position. Discrete key frames like DiscretePointKeyFrame create sudden jumps between values.
During the final two seconds, it uses an instance of the SplinePointKeyFrame class to move the ellipse back to its starting position. Spline key frames like SplinePointKeyFrame create a variable transition between values according to the values of the KeySpline property. In this example, the animation begins slowly and speeds up exponentially toward the end of the time segment.
