    Hello, I'm just getting started with your awesome controls and would like some advice on page transitions and animations. I'd love to get some indication on the following 2 scenarios:

    #1
    let's say I want a Tile transition for BackwardIn/ForwardOut and Continuum transition for ForwardIn/BackwardOut on a specific page. How would I go about that? XAML or code? Where would I set the additional properties these transitions require when navigating in and out of the page?

    #2
    in the event of a DataBoundListBox that needs to download data, can I 'mimic' a Tile animation on its items when the data is downloaded? I mean:
    - user navigates to the page
    - a loading animation is displayed while data is being downloaded
    - download finishes, items are added to the list as if we were in a backward in Tile kind of transition

    Hopefully this makes sense, and sorry for the basic questions :)
    TIA

    Hello Zaam,

    Please follow this blog post to see how to implement different page transition per page:

    As for the RadDataBoundListBox animations, the behavior that you would like to have is currently possible by writing a certain amount of code which includes hooking events and creating custom animations. Since we consider this approach an overkill, we will integrate the animations support as a feature of the control. We will do our best to do this for Q2 2011.

    We have updated your Telerik points for sharing the animations idea with us.

    Do not hesitate to get back to us in case you have further questions or need assistance.

    Best wishes,
