public:
void Begin(
	FrameworkContentElement^ containingObject
)

Parameters

containingObject
Type: System.Windows::FrameworkContentElement^

An object contained within the same name scope as the targets of this storyboard's animations. Animations without a TargetName are applied to containingObject.

If the targeted properties are already animated, they are replaced using the SnapshotAndReplace handoff behavior.

Storyboards started with this method cannot be paused, resumed, or otherwise interactively controlled after they are started. To make a storyboard controllable, use the Begin or Begin method.

Beginning a storyboard triggers the CurrentStateInvalidated and CurrentGlobalSpeedInvalidated events.

The following example uses a storyboard to animate a TextEffect. The TextEffect is contained within a FrameworkContentElement's name scope.
