Seek Method

Storyboard.Seek Method

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Moves the storyboard to the specified animation position. The storyboard performs the requested seek when the next clock tick occurs.

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

public void Seek(
	TimeSpan offset
)

Parameters

offset
Type: System.TimeSpan
A positive or negative time value that describes the amount by which the timeline should move forward or backward from the beginning of the animation. By using the TimeSpan Parse behavior, a TimeSpan can be specified as a string in the following format (in this syntax, the [] characters denote optional components of the string, but the quotes, colons, and periods are all a literal part of the syntax):
"[days.]hours:minutes:seconds[.fractionalSeconds]"
- or -
"days"

The following example shows how to use the Seek method. When you tap the rectangle created by the following XAML, the animation jumps to 3 seconds from the beginning of the animation.


      <StackPanel>
        <StackPanel.Resources>
            <Storyboard x:Name="myStoryboard">
              <DoubleAnimation
              Storyboard.TargetName="MyAnimatedRectangle"
              Storyboard.TargetProperty="Width"
              From="50" To="550" Duration="0:0:5" />
            </Storyboard>
        </StackPanel.Resources>
        <Rectangle
         x:Name="MyAnimatedRectangle"
         Width="50"
         Height="100"
         Fill="Blue"
	     MouseLeftButtonDown="SeekStoryboard"/>
    </StackPanel>

    myStoryboard.Begin();
    myStoryboard.Seek(new TimeSpan(0, 0, 3));
