VisualTransition Class


Represents the visual behavior that occurs when a control transitions from one state to another.

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

public class VisualTransition : DependencyObject


Initializes a new instance of the VisualTransition class.


Gets the DependencyObjectType that wraps the CLR type of this instance. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Gets the Dispatcher this DispatcherObject is associated with. (Inherited from DispatcherObject.)


Gets or sets the name of the VisualState to transition from.


Gets or sets the time that it takes to move from one state to another.


Gets or sets a custom mathematical formula that is used to transition between states.


Gets a value that indicates whether this instance is currently sealed (read-only).(Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Gets or sets the Storyboard that occurs when the transition occurs.


Gets or sets the name of the VisualState to transition to.


Determines whether the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject.(Inherited from DispatcherObject.)


Clears the local value of a property. The property to be cleared is specified by a DependencyProperty identifier. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Clears the local value of a read-only property. The property to be cleared is specified by a DependencyPropertyKey. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Coerces the value of the specified . This is accomplished by invoking any CoerceValueCallback function specified in property metadata for the dependency property as it exists on the calling DependencyObject.(Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Determines whether a provided DependencyObject is equivalent to the current DependencyObject.(Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Gets a for this DependencyObject.(Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Creates a specialized enumerator for determining which dependency properties have locally set values on this DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns the current effective value of a on this instance of a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Re-evaluates the effective value for the specified dependency property(Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)


Invoked whenever the effective value of any on this DependencyObject has been updated. The specific dependency property that changed is reported in the event data. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Returns the local value of a , if it exists. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT

System_CAPS_pubmethodSetCurrentValue(DependencyProperty, Object)

Sets the value of a without changing its value source. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT

System_CAPS_pubmethodSetValue(DependencyProperty, Object)

Sets the local value of a , specified by its dependency property identifier. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT

System_CAPS_pubmethodSetValue(DependencyPropertyKey, Object)

Sets the local value of a read-only , specified by the DependencyPropertyKey identifier of the dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Returns a value that indicates whether serialization processes should serialize the value for the provided .(Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Enforces that the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject.(Inherited from DispatcherObject.)

You can specify the visual behavior of a control when it transitions between states by adding VisualTransition objects. When you create a VisualTransition, you specify one or more of the following:

  • The time it takes for a transition between states to occur by setting the GeneratedDuration property.

  • Additional changes in the control's appearance that occur at the time of the transition by setting the Storyboard property.

  • When the VisualTransition is applied by setting the To and From properties.

Legacy Code Example

The following example creates a VisualTransition that specifies that when the user moves the mouse away from the control, the control's border changes to blue, then to yellow, and then to black in 1.5 seconds. For the entire example, see Customizing the Appearance of an Existing Control by Creating a ControlTemplate.
