    As it is mentioned here http://www.telerik.com/help/windows-phone/raddataboundlistbox-features-itemanimations-overview.html , there are only 2 animations available: ItemAdded and ItemRemoved.

    It would be really cool to have ItemSelected animation. Obviously, it would play when user taps on item. Something like toolkit:TiltEffect ( http://www.geekchamp.com/articles/silverlight-for-wp7-toolkit-tilteffect-in-depth ).

    Another useful animation would be something like ItemActivatedOnSwiping, which would be played during swiping PivotItem to the page with DataBoundListBox. Probably, it is possible to implement it for now, by resetting source or re-adding items? It should be looking like animation in mail app.

    Hello Vitalii,

    Thanks for writing and for your feedback.

    The ItemSelectedAnimation would be a nice feature and we will consider it for sure. We can possibly add it in the Q3 2013 SP1 timeframe.

    We also consider implementing gesture support which should enable you to swipe items to perform an action on them. You will receive an event containing swipe direction and will be able to perform any action you want on the corresponding item.

    The Pivot animations are also important and we have them on mind.

    Let me know if you have further questions or need assistance.

    http://www.telerik.com/help/windows-phone/telerik-windows-controls-interactioneffectmanager.html

    Looking like its already there. Wondering, if it can be attached to JumpListItems. I believe, they should. :)

    http://blogs.telerik.com/blogs/11-06-15/creating-loading-animation-for-telerik-wp7-listbox.aspx

    Hello Vitalii,

    You can use the approach demonstrated in the blog post but it has nothing to do with the request you have initially made here, as far as I correctly understand it.

    The animation described in the blog post animates the containers withing the listbox as soon as it's loaded, whereas in your initial post you want to animate items by using gestures or upon selection.

    Please make sure to open a new support thread if the inquiry you have is not related to the one in the current thread so that we can provide you with better support assistance.

    Sorry for messing.

    At the very beginning of article, it is said 

         - when the listbox is inside Pivot and the selected pivot item is changed,

    I was just wondered, if it is possible to handle for now. Because it answers my second question about ItemActivatedOnSwiping.
    And i found answer to my first question as InteractionEffectManager (of course, if it works for list items like TiltEffext, i suppose so, but didnt test yet).

    Hello Vitalii,

    The animations inside the items when selecting different Pivot items are currently not available as an out-of-the-box feature. We have this on our TODO list but currently I cannot give you an exact estimation of when this will be ready.

    You should be able to easily implement them on your side though. The DataBoundListBox control exposes the RealizedContainers property which allows you to access all currently realized visual items within the list control. You can then easily select a visual element from their sub-tree and play animation on it when the pivot selection changes.

    I hope this helps.

    Just a short question. Is searching visual tree fast enough in wp7?
    I noted that you're using it often in demo and samples. Is that okay for a real production, or its better to store elements somehow?

    Hi Vitalii,

    Thanks for writing.

    Yes, for one-time operations traversing the visual tree is fast enough. You should be careful though when doing it in loops since it might impact performance.
