    Can the transition control be used in an MDI type scenario?

    We have an application with multiple views, but each of them should only be showed inside the main view.

    Is this advisable or is it a bad idea?

    Thanks,
    Jacques

    Hello Jacques,

    RadTransitionControl is a ContentControl that applies a transition effect when its content changes. I am not sure in your case how the multiple views are implemented, so I cannot tell whether using TransitionControl will be possible. Could you please send us more details about the exact scenario? Thanks in advance.

    Ok well basically it's a mutli form application with distinct grouped areas. For example:
    1. Home (dashboard)
    2. Projects
    3. Employees
    4. Configuration

    Each of these areas have a menu/button that activates it. Opening the application will start you off on the dashboard, then when you click on Projects we want the dashboard view to be animated out and the projects view to be animated in.
    Concerns I have are the usual performance, usuability, etc.
    My main thoughts are about how to achieve this.
    At one point I thought of using WPF pages, but I'm not sure that's right. (I saw this in your Transition control, but wasn't sure it's appropriate for anything but content)
    I thought of the TileView control, but that looks like the wrong approach as well.

    Do you need more info?

    Regards,

    Hello Jacques,

    You can use different UserControls for each of these groups and animate them with the help of the TransitionControl. I've attached a simple project demonstrating the approach, please download it and give it a try.
