Represents an easing function that creates an animation that accelerates and/or decelerates using an exponential formula (see remarks).
Assembly: System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Dispatcher||Gets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|EasingMode||Gets or sets a value that specifies how the animation interpolates. (Inherited from EasingFunctionBase.)|
|Exponent||Gets or sets the exponent used to determine the interpolation of the animation.|
|CheckAccess||Determines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ClearValue||Clears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|Ease||Transforms normalized time to control the pace of an animation. (Inherited from EasingFunctionBase.)|
|EaseInCore||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).)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetAnimationBaseValue||Returns any base value established for a Silverlight dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetValue||Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ReadLocalValue||Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|SetValue||Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
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.
The formula used for this function is the following.
Using the formula above, the following graph illustrates the effect of several different values for the Exponent property:
There are several other easing functions besides which you can explore using the following 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 easing function to a DoubleAnimation to create a decelerating animation.
