    I know you boys are on vacation, but when you get this post, can you tell me what happened to Slide Transition? Also, are there any plans for more Transition effects?

    Thanks and Happy New Year!

    Only the boys at Telerik went on vacation?  :D

     

    I haven't delved into the Navigation controls yet, but any chance the renamed DefaultTransition what was once the Slide transition?

     

    Just wanted to check because I caught in the documentation that there was a name change and hoping it might be just that easy.

     

    Also, for the girls left in the office (sorry, it's bad joke day today), any chance there will be a demo (or documentation) made available to give us insight into using the ITransition interface? :)

     

    Thanks!

    Edit: Doh!  I should have scrolled down a little further in the forum, apparently they've removed SlideTransition per this post:

    http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/silverlight/navigation/cant-find-slidetransition-class.aspx

    Now I'm really anxious for some tips on using ITransition.  I've set up my own custom navigation system but am anxious to switch it up to the RadNavigation system, I just wanna make sure I can keep some of the transition effects I had with my old system.

    Ya, looks like they have removed it. But the default version is just a snap version with no animation. I hope to see more effects in the future!

    Hi ..Ben,

    The SlideTransition is not available any longer. Currently, there is only DefaultTransition (simple navigation between pages without animation) and FadeTransition(navigation between pages with fade effect). There were some issues with the SlideTransition and therefore we had to remove it. However, by implementing the ITransition interface, you can easily achieve the same effect. We decided that this is the better way to support SlideTransition.

    Hi Boryana,

    I'm just learning the RadNavigation-related classes so please be kind if this is a stupid question: Do you have an example of how I might implement ITransition?

    Our client really wants to see the slide effect for some reason. Is it simply a matter of providing an animation that targets the FrameworkElement passed to ITransition.Begin()? Are there any other issues? Maybe some sample code??

    Great work on the Navigation classes--
    Cheers,
    Scott

    Hello Scott,
    Please find attached a sample project demonstrating how to write your own SlideTransition effect and how to use it in PageNavigation. This is one way to write SlideEffect  but you can change the duration,orientation etc. as well as the whole animation of the transition as you prefer.
    I hope this answer your question.

    Whenever you guys have free time (ha!), I think myself and many others might appreciate a brief guide on how to implement the ITransition interface. I was thinking just some high-level tips/considerations, etc. I am still delving into Silverlight/WPF so perhaps this is just my lack of knowledge into the technologies, but I am unclear on why you do some of the things that you do in the FadeTransition class; for example why do you set the target.RenderTransform property to null, why do you set IsRunning to true/false when you do, etc.

    It doesn't need to be anything very detailed, just some helpful hints to help those of us out that are trying to create our own custom transitions.

    Thanks,
    Larkin

    Hi Larkin,

    We are in the process of updating the online documentation so, keep an eye on that too.
    For now please find attached a sample project that demonstrates how to implement a custom slide transition.
    The IsRunning property is set to true when the animation starts and to false when it is completed.
    I hope this answers your question.
