Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.Animation.Storyboard
The Storyboard that occurs when the transition occurs.

When a VisualTransition contains a Storyboard, the Storyboard runs any time the VisualTransition is applied. For example, if you want the border of a Button to change colors when the user moves the mouse away from it, you can create a VisualTransition that has a Storyboard that changes the button's background.

The following example creates a VisualTransition that specifies that when the user moves the mouse away from the control, the control's border changes to blue, then to yellow, and then to black in 1.5 seconds. For the entire example, see Customizing the Appearance of an Existing Control by Creating a ControlTemplate.

<!--Take one and a half seconds to transition from the
    MouseOver state to the Normal state. 
    Have the SolidColorBrush, BorderBrush, fade to blue, 
    then to yellow, and then to black in that time.-->
<VisualTransition From="MouseOver" To="Normal" 
                      GeneratedDuration="0:0:1.5">
  <Storyboard>
    <ColorAnimationUsingKeyFrames
      Storyboard.TargetProperty="Color"
      Storyboard.TargetName="BorderBrush"
      FillBehavior="HoldEnd" >

        <LinearColorKeyFrame Value="Black" 
          KeyTime="0:0:1.5" />
