Storyboard.Begin Method (FrameworkElement)

Applies the animations associated with this Storyboard to their targets and initiates them.

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

public void Begin(
	FrameworkElement containingObject
)

Parameters

containingObject
Type: System.Windows.FrameworkElement

An object contained within the same name scope as the targets of this storyboard's animations. Animations without a TargetName are applied to containingObject.

If the targeted properties are already animated, they are replaced using the SnapshotAndReplace handoff behavior.

Storyboards started with this method cannot be paused, resumed, or otherwise interactively controlled after they are started. To make a storyboard controllable, use the Begin(FrameworkElement, Boolean) or Begin(FrameworkElement, HandoffBehavior, Boolean) method.

Beginning a storyboard triggers the CurrentStateInvalidated and CurrentGlobalSpeedInvalidated events.
