How to: Get the Non-Animated Value of an Animated Property

To get the non-animated value of an object's animated property, you use the object's GetAnimationBaseValue method. UIElement, Animatable, and ContentElement each have their own implementation.

In the following example, the non-animated values of animated properties are retrieved and displayed.

/*

   This sample shows how to use the 
   Animatable.GetAnimationBaseValue and 
   UIElement.GetAnimationBaseValue methods
   to get the non-animated value of an
   animated Animatable or UIElement.
