Return Value

The current state of the clock created for this storyboard: Active, Filling, or Stopped.

This method does not tell you whether a storyboard is paused. To determine whether a storyboard is paused, use the GetIsPaused method.

To use this method to retrieve information about a storyboard's clock, the storyboard must be controllable. 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. See How to: Control a Storyboard After It Starts for an example.
