Storyboard.Seek Method (TimeSpan, TimeSeekOrigin)


Seeks this Storyboard to the specified position. The Storyboard performs the requested seek when the next clock tick occurs.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Media.Animation
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

Public Sub Seek (
	offset As TimeSpan,
	origin As TimeSeekOrigin


Type: System.TimeSpan

A positive or negative value that describes the amount by which the timeline should move forward or backward from the specified origin.

Type: System.Windows.Media.Animation.TimeSeekOrigin

The position from which offset is applied.

Note that seek operations do not take the storyboard's SpeedRatio or SlipBehavior settings into account. The storyboard is treated as though it has a SpeedRatio of 1 and no SlipBehavior.

To interactively control this storyboard, you must use the same containingObject parameter when calling the interactive methods that you used to begin the storyboard. A controllable storyboard can pause, resume, seek, stop, and be removed. To make a storyboard controllable in code, you must use the appropriate overload of the storyboard's Begin method and specify true to make it controllable. For an example, see How to: Control a Storyboard After It Starts.
