SizeAnimationUsingKeyFrames.IsAdditive Property

Gets a value that specifies whether the animation's output value is added to the base value of the property being animated.

Namespace: System.Windows.Media.Animation
Assembly: PresentationCore (in presentationcore.dll)
XML Namespace:  http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation

public bool IsAdditive { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_IsAdditive ()

/** @property */
public void set_IsAdditive (boolean value)

public function get IsAdditive () : boolean

public function set IsAdditive (value : boolean)

<object IsAdditive="bool" .../>

Property Value

true if the animation adds its output value to the base value of the property being animated instead of replacing it; otherwise, false. The default value is false.

This example shows how to add an animation output value to an animation starting value.

The IsAdditive property specifies whether you want the output value of an animation added to the starting value (base value) of an animated property. You can use the IsAdditive property with most basic animations and most key frame animations. For more information, see Animation Overview and KeyFrame Animations.

The following example shows the effect of using the DoubleAnimation.IsAdditive property with DoubleAnimation and using the DoubleAnimationUsingKeyFrames.IsAdditive property with DoubleAnimationUsingKeyFrames.
