The storyboard to begin.


A value of the enumeration that describes behavior to use if a property described in the storyboard is already animated.


Declares whether the animation is controllable (can be paused) after it is started.

For the signatures that do not use the isControllable, parameter, or when that parameter is specified false, the timeline clocks associated with the animation are removed as soon as it reaches the "Fill" period. Therefore the animation cannot be restarted after being run once. Note that controlling an animation also requires that the storyboard be named or accessible as an instance in code.
