    Hi Sathish,

    Thank you for your interest in the RadControls for Silverlight.

    Actually the expander's animation is disabled by default. To enable it you should set the AnimationManager's IsAnimationEnabled property to true for the chosen expander. More information and code snippets you can find in the Expander Animation article.

    Attached you can find an example project which demonstrates the animation behavior of the RadExpander control.

    Please give it a try and let us know if you have more questions.

    Best wishes,

    Thanks,

    It is working fine..Is there any way to have two expander side by side to toggle between the visual location Common between them below that panel to show/hide.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    TITLE BAR 1                    |    TITLE BAR 2                    |
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                                           |

            COMMON PLACE FOR CONTENT AREA
                    SHOW/HIDE for respetive toggle of 
        TITLE BAR 1 and TITLE BAR 2 -> similar to Tab Page



    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    With Regards,

    Hello Sathish Raja,

    Thank you for the clarification.

    The scenario you sent us fits better to the RadTabControl. You can preview its behavior in our online demos. More about this control you can find in the RadTabControl section of our online help.

    We hope this information will help you.

    I am also having problems with animating the expander.  No mater what I tried, it simply would disappear/appear instead of slowly scrolling down or up. After coming here looking for help, I saw that what I already had was correct. Then I downloaded the demo and was successful running it, but I still couldn't see the problem. Finally I just copied the Page usercontrol into my project and had the same result. Is there anything more that I'm missing?

    (edit)
    Nvm. I found out that I didn't have the hotfix for Silverlight 3
