CircleEase Class


Represents an easing function that creates an animation that accelerates and/or decelerates using a circular function.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Media.Animation
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public class CircleEase : EasingFunctionBase


Initializes a new instance of the CircleEase class.


Gets a value that indicates whether the object can be made unmodifiable. (Inherited from Freezable.)


Gets the DependencyObjectType that wraps the CLR type of this instance. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Gets the Dispatcher this DispatcherObject is associated with. (Inherited from DispatcherObject.)


Gets or sets a value that specifies how the animation interpolates. (Inherited from EasingFunctionBase.)


Gets a value that indicates whether the object is currently modifiable. (Inherited from Freezable.)


Gets a value that indicates whether this instance is currently sealed (read-only).(Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Determines whether the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject.(Inherited from DispatcherObject.)


Clears the local value of a property. The property to be cleared is specified by a DependencyProperty identifier. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Clears the local value of a read-only property. The property to be cleared is specified by a DependencyPropertyKey. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Creates a modifiable clone of the Freezable, making deep copies of the object's values. When copying the object's dependency properties, this method copies expressions (which might no longer resolve) but not animations or their current values. (Inherited from Freezable.)


Makes the instance a clone (deep copy) of the specified Freezable using base (non-animated) property values. (Inherited from Freezable.)


Creates a modifiable clone (deep copy) of the Freezable using its current values.(Inherited from Freezable.)


Makes the instance a modifiable clone (deep copy) of the specified Freezable using current property values.(Inherited from Freezable.)


Coerces the value of the specified . This is accomplished by invoking any CoerceValueCallback function specified in property metadata for the dependency property as it exists on the calling DependencyObject.(Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Initializes a new instance of the Freezable class. (Inherited from Freezable.)


Creates a new instance of the Freezable derived class. When creating a derived class, you must override this method.(Overrides Freezable.CreateInstanceCore().)


Transforms normalized time to control the pace of an animation.(Inherited from EasingFunctionBase.)


Provides the logic portion of the easing function that you can override to produce the EaseIn mode of the custom easing function.(Overrides EasingFunctionBase.EaseInCore(Double).)


Determines whether a provided DependencyObject is equivalent to the current DependencyObject.(Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Makes the current object unmodifiable and sets its IsFrozen property to true. (Inherited from Freezable.)


Makes the Freezable object unmodifiable or tests whether it can be made unmodifiable.(Inherited from Freezable.)


Creates a frozen copy of the Freezable, using base (non-animated) property values. Because the copy is frozen, any frozen sub-objects are copied by reference. (Inherited from Freezable.)


Makes the instance a frozen clone of the specified Freezable using base (non-animated) property values.(Inherited from Freezable.)


Creates a frozen copy of the Freezable using current property values. Because the copy is frozen, any frozen sub-objects are copied by reference.(Inherited from Freezable.)


Makes the current instance a frozen clone of the specified Freezable. If the object has animated dependency properties, their current animated values are copied.(Inherited from Freezable.)


Gets a hash code for this DependencyObject.(Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Creates a specialized enumerator for determining which dependency properties have locally set values on this DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns the current effective value of a on this instance of a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Re-evaluates the effective value for the specified dependency property(Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)


Called when the current Freezable object is modified. (Inherited from Freezable.)

System_CAPS_protmethodOnFreezablePropertyChanged(DependencyObject, DependencyObject)

Ensures that appropriate context pointers are established for a DependencyObjectType data member that has just been set.(Inherited from Freezable.)

System_CAPS_protmethodOnFreezablePropertyChanged(DependencyObject, DependencyObject, DependencyProperty)

This member supports the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.(Inherited from Freezable.)


Overrides the DependencyObject implementation of OnPropertyChanged to also invoke any Changed handlers in response to a changing dependency property of type Freezable.(Inherited from Freezable.)


Returns the local value of a , if it exists. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Ensures that the Freezable is being accessed from a valid thread. Inheritors of Freezable must call this method at the beginning of any API that reads data members that are not dependency properties.(Inherited from Freezable.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodSetCurrentValue(DependencyProperty, Object)

Sets the value of a without changing its value source. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT

System_CAPS_pubmethodSetValue(DependencyProperty, Object)

Sets the local value of a , specified by its dependency property identifier. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT

System_CAPS_pubmethodSetValue(DependencyPropertyKey, Object)

Sets the local value of a read-only , specified by the DependencyPropertyKey identifier of the dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Returns a value that indicates whether serialization processes should serialize the value for the provided .(Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Enforces that the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject.(Inherited from DispatcherObject.)


Raises the Changed event for the Freezable and invokes its OnChanged method. Classes that derive from Freezable should call this method at the end of any API that modifies class members that are not stored as dependency properties.(Inherited from Freezable.)


Verifies that the Freezable is not frozen and that it is being accessed from a valid threading context. Freezable inheritors should call this method at the beginning of any API that writes to data members that are not dependency properties. (Inherited from Freezable.)


Occurs when the Freezable or an object it contains is modified. (Inherited from Freezable.)

You can control whether the animation accelerates, decelerates, or both by specifying the EasingMode. The following graph demonstrates the different values of EasingMode, where f(t) represents the animation progress and t represents time.

CircleEase EasingMode graphs.

The formula used for this function is the following.

Mathematical formula for CircleEase

The valid values for t are -1 <= t <= 1. Values greater than 1 are evaluated as 1, and values less than -1 are evaluated as -1. This means that for values outside this interval, the animation continues, but the easing function pauses when it enters the invalid domain, and it resumes after it leaves the invalid domain.

There are several other easing functions besides CircleEase which you can explore using the following Silverlight sample.

Run this sample

In addition to using the easing functions included in the run-time, you can create your own custom easing functions by inheriting from EasingFunctionBase.

The following example applies a CircleEase easing function to a DoubleAnimation to create a decelerating animation.
