Point3DAnimation.To Property

Gets or sets the animation's ending value. This is a dependency property.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media.Animation
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation

public Nullable<Point3D> To { get; set; }
<object>  <object.To>    <Point3D />  </object.To></object>
<object To="Point3D"/>- or -<object To="{x:Null Markup Extension}"/>

Property Value

Type: System.Nullable<Point3D>
The ending value of the animation. The default value is null.

Identifier field

Metadata properties set to true

None

The following table summarizes how the From, To, and By properties may be used together or separately to determine an animation's target values.

Properties Specified

Resulting Behavior

From

The animation progresses from the value specified by the From property to the base value of the property being animated or to a previous animation's output value, depending on how the previous animation is configured.

From and To

The animation progresses from the value specified by the From property to the value specified by the To property.

From and By

The animation progresses from the value specified by the From property to the value specified by the sum of the From and By properties.

To

The animation progresses from the animated property's base value or a previous animation's output value to the value specified by the To property.

By

The animation progresses from the base value of the property being animated or a previous animation's output value to the sum of that value and the value specified by the By property.

Note   If you set both the To and By properties, the To property takes precedence and the By property is ignored.

To use other interpolation methods or animate between more than two target values, use a Point3DAnimationUsingKeyFrames object.

The following example shows how to animate the position of a camera and animate the direction it is pointing in a 3D scene. This is done by using Point3DAnimation and Vector3DAnimation to animate the Position and LookDirection properties respectively of the PerspectiveCamera. You might use an animation like this to change the onlooker's view of a scene in response to an event.

How to: Control an Animation using From, To, and By A "From/To/By" or "basic animation" creates a transition between two target values (see Animation Overview for an introduction to different types of animations). To set the target values of a basic animation, use its From, To, and By properties. The following table summarizes how the From, To, and By properties may be used together or separately to determine an animation's target values.
