The classes and their properties that are exposed through this namespace retrieve the raw scaling, translation, and opacity parameters used in Windows animations. These parameters include such metrics as the animation type, stagger delay, z-order, duration, initial and final opacity, initial and final scale factors, and cubic Bezier control points, among others. This information enables developers of apps and application frameworks to create custom animations that are consistent with both Windows itself and with other apps that use Windows animations.
The Windows.UI.Core.AnimationMetrics namespace has these types of members:
|AnimationDescription||Exposes a collection of individual animation effects that are performed on a specific target to make up a complete Windows opacity, scaling, or translation animation.|
|OpacityAnimation||Provides methods that enable you to retrieve the parameters of an opacity (fade in or fade out) animation.|
|PropertyAnimation||Provides methods that enable you to retrieve animation property values that are common to all property animation types.|
|ScaleAnimation||Provides methods that enable you to retrieve the parameters for a scaling (growing or shrinking) animation.|
|TranslationAnimation||Provides methods that enable you to retrieve the parameters for a translation (move to a new location) animation.|
The Windows.UI.Core.AnimationMetrics namespace has these enumerations.
|AnimationEffect||Specifies an animation.|
|AnimationEffectTarget||Specifies a participant in an animation.|
|PropertyAnimationType||Specifies the animation type represented by a PropertyAnimation object.|
The Windows.UI.Core.AnimationMetrics namespace defines these interfaces.
|IPropertyAnimation||Describes properties of animations that are common to all animation effects.|
