UIElement.ApplyAnimationClock Method (DependencyProperty, AnimationClock)

Applies an animation to a specified dependency property on this element. Any existing animations are stopped and replaced with the new animation.

Namespace: System.Windows
Assembly: PresentationCore (in presentationcore.dll)

public void ApplyAnimationClock (
	DependencyProperty dp,
	AnimationClock clock
public final void ApplyAnimationClock (
	DependencyProperty dp, 
	AnimationClock clock
public final function ApplyAnimationClock (
	dp : DependencyProperty, 
	clock : AnimationClock
You cannot use methods in XAML.



The identifier for the property to animate.


The animation clock that controls and declares the animation.

To remove an animation from a property, specify the identifier for that property as dp and specify clock as a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic). This removes the animation and the animated property is set to its base value. However, the originally associated animation clock is not stopped. Any other animations assigned to that clock will continue to run.

In the following example, a Rectangle myAnimatedRectangle has a particular timing animation applied to it by calling ApplyAnimationClock .

// Create a DoubleAnimation to
// animate its width.
DoubleAnimation widthAnimation = 
    new DoubleAnimation(
        new Duration(TimeSpan.FromSeconds(5)));
//widthAnimation.RepeatBehavior = RepeatBehavior.Forever;
widthAnimation.AutoReverse = true;
widthAnimation.SpeedRatio = 0.5;
// Create a clock from the animation.
myControllableClock = widthAnimation.CreateClock();

// Apply the clock to the rectangle's Width property.
    Rectangle.WidthProperty, myControllableClock);
