ThicknessAnimationBase Class

Abstract class that, when implemented, animates a Thickness value.

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

public abstract class ThicknessAnimationBase : AnimationTimeline
This class is abstract; see Inheritance Hierarchy for derived non-abstract classes usable in XAML.

Notes to Inheritors:

See the Custom Animations Overview for information about extending animation classes.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the derived ThicknessAnimationUsingKeyFrames class in Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML).

<!-- This example shows how to use the ThicknessAnimationUsingKeyFrames to create
an animation on the BorderThickness property of a Border. -->

  <StackPanel Orientation="Vertical" HorizontalAlignment="Center">
    <Border Background="#99FFFFFF" BorderBrush="#CCCCFF" BorderThickness="1"
    Margin="0,60,0,20" Padding="20"  >
        <EventTrigger RoutedEvent="Border.Loaded">

              <!-- Animating the BorderThickness property uses 3 KeyFrames. -->
                Duration="0:0:5" FillBehavior="HoldEnd" RepeatBehavior="Forever">

                  <!-- Using a LinearThicknessKeyFrame, thickness increases gradually
                  over the first half second of the animation. -->
                  <LinearThicknessKeyFrame KeyTime="0:0:0.5">
                      <Thickness Left="8" Right="8" Top="6" Bottom="6" />

                  <!-- Using a DiscreteThicknessKeyFrame, thickness increases suddenly
                  after the first second of the animation. -->
                  <DiscreteThicknessKeyFrame KeyTime="0:0:1">
                      <Thickness Left="28" Right="28" Top="24" Bottom="24" />

                  <!-- Using a SplineThicknessKeyFrame, thickness decreases slowly at first
                  and then suddenly contracts. This KeyFrame takes 2 seconds. -->
                  <SplineThicknessKeyFrame KeySpline="0.6,0.0 0.9,0.00" KeyTime="0:0:3">
                      <Thickness Left="1" Right="1" Top="1" Bottom="8" />


        This example shows how to use the ThicknessAnimationUsingKeyFrames to create
        an animation on the BorderThickness property of a Border.
