hi,
i've just started with your wonderfull toolkit for WP7 and i have a question:
is it possible to specify different transitions for the various pages composing my application, instead of defining only one to be used across the entire application ?
i'm talking about something similar to the Toolbox for Windows Phone where you can declare in XAML the transition to be used with each page.

Hi Stefano,

You can use the RadTransitionControl.Transition attached property to accomplis this. Just place this code in the definition of your page:

<telerikPrimitives:RadTransitionControl.Transition>
      <!-- specify here the transition you want to use -->
      <telerikPrimitives:RadTileTransition/>
</telerikPrimitives:RadTransitionControl.Transition>

Here is the full sample code:

<phone:PhoneApplicationPage 
    x:Class="Telerik.Examples.WP.PhoneApplicationFrame.Wizard.Page1"
    xmlns:phone="clr-namespace:Microsoft.Phone.Controls;assembly=Microsoft.Phone"
    xmlns:shell="clr-namespace:Microsoft.Phone.Shell;assembly=Microsoft.Phone"
    xmlns:telerik="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Core"
    xmlns:telerikPrimitives="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.Primitives"
    xmlns:local="clr-namespace:Telerik.Examples.WP.PhoneApplicationFrame.Wizard"
    FontFamily="{StaticResource PhoneFontFamilyNormal}"
    FontSize="{StaticResource PhoneFontSizeNormal}"
    Foreground="{StaticResource PhoneForegroundBrush}"
    SupportedOrientations="Portrait" Orientation="Portrait"    
    mc:Ignorable="d" d:DesignHeight="728" d:DesignWidth="480"
    Background="Black"
    shell:SystemTray.IsVisible="False">
    <telerikPrimitives:RadTransitionControl.Transition>
        <telerikPrimitives:RadTileTransition/>
    </telerikPrimitives:RadTransitionControl.Transition>  
....

Please let us know it this works for you.

Best wishes,

thanks a lot,
i've menaged to include the code and achieve per page transitions but I still have a question: why can i only make some transition to work ? (or better, what am I actually missing ? :) )
I've tested some and for example with RadFadeTransition or RadScaleTransition or RadSlideTransition I get the desired result, but no luck in using RadTileTransition or RadTurnstileTransition.
I'm just testing on a simple two pages application, with some random items placed inside a grid.

Hello Stefano,

I've created a sample project which demonstrates how to use the transitions. Please take a look at it and let us know if you still have any problems.

How do I use a custom transition in this scenario. Using the code from the example a custom transition can be defined as:

<UserControl.Resources>
   <telerikCore:RadFadeAnimation x:Key="fadeInAnimation"
                                   StartOpacity="0.0"
                                   EndOpacity="1.0" />
   <telerikCore:RadFadeAnimation x:Key="fadeOutAnimation"
                                   StartOpacity="1.0"
                                   EndOpacity="0.0" />
   <telerikPrimitives:RadTransition x:Key="MyTransition"
                                       PlayMode="Consecutively"
                                       ForwardInAnimation="{StaticResource fadeInAnimation}"
                                       ForwardOutAnimation="{StaticResource fadeOutAnimation}"
                                       BackwardInAnimation="{StaticResource fadeInAnimation}"
                                       BackwardOutAnimation="{StaticResource fadeOutAnimation}">
   </telerikPrimitives:RadTransition>
</UserControl.Resources>

but how do I point the RadTransitionControl.Transition attached property to the new transition.

Hi Umar,

you can use the following syntax:
<phone:PhoneApplicationPage.Resources>
        <telerikCore:RadFadeAnimation x:Key="fadeInAnimation"
                                   StartOpacity="0.0"
                                   EndOpacity="1.0"/>
        <telerikCore:RadFadeAnimation x:Key="fadeOutAnimation"
                                   StartOpacity="1.0"
                                   EndOpacity="0.0"/>
    </phone:PhoneApplicationPage.Resources>
  
  
    <telerikPrimitives:RadTransitionControl.Transition>
        <telerikPrimitives:RadTransition
                                       PlayMode="Consecutively"
                                       ForwardInAnimation="{StaticResource fadeInAnimation}"
                                       ForwardOutAnimation="{StaticResource fadeOutAnimation}"
                                       BackwardInAnimation="{StaticResource fadeInAnimation}"
                                       BackwardOutAnimation="{StaticResource fadeOutAnimation}">
        </telerikPrimitives:RadTransition>
  
    </telerikPrimitives:RadTransitionControl.Transition>

Thanks a lot for the samples, i was missing this line
this.SetValue(RadTileAnimation.ContainerToAnimateProperty, this.TileContainerListBox);
to properly start the animation.

I tried this example and get, RadFadeAnimation is not found.  I'm trying to change the Duration of the fadeout.

Hello Derek,

Thank you for contacting us.

Please confirm that you have referenced the assembly: Telerik.Windows.Core.dll
and that you have added an xmlns statement in the root tag mapping a prefix to the CLR namespace Telerik.Windows.Controls from the assembly Telerik.Windows.Core. Then you can try to rebuild the solution and you should find the RadFadeAnimation. To change the duration of the fadeout, you just have to set the animation's Duration property to a new Duration.

Please, let me know if you need additional assistance.

All the best,
Todor

I believe I have all the refs correct.  I'm on the latest release.
I reference:
Telerik.WIndows.Controls.Data
Telerik.WIndows.Controls.Primitives
Telerik.WIndows.Core
Telerik.WIndows.Data

My xmls statement is:
 xmlns:telerik="http://schemas.telerik.com/windowsphone"

In Resources for the page...
<phone:PhoneApplicationPage.Resources>              
            <telerik:RadFadeAnimation x:Key="fadeInAnimation"
                                          StartOpacity="0.0"
                                          EndOpacity="1.0" />
            <telerik:RadFadeAnimation x:Key="fadeOutAnimation"
                                          StartOpacity="1.0"
                                          EndOpacity="0.0" />
    </phone:PhoneApplicationPage.Resources>


Then:
<telerik:RadTransitionControl.Transition>
       <telerik:RadTransition PlayMode="Consecutively"
                                        ForwardInAnimation="{StaticResource fadeInAnimation}"
                                        ForwardOutAnimation="{StaticResource fadeOutAnimation}"
                                        BackwardInAnimation="{StaticResource fadeInAnimation}"
                                        BackwardOutAnimation="{StaticResource fadeOutAnimation}">
       </telerik:RadTransition>
 
   </telerik:RadTransitionControl.Transition>

Yet, this works fine:
<telerik:RadTransitionControl.Transition>
        <telerik:RadSlideTransition />
    </telerik:RadTransitionControl.Transition>

Hello Derek,

As you can read from my previous post and from our online documentation here, the correct xmlns is:

xmlns:telerikCore="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Core"

You can change the prefix of course, just make sure it is the same as the one that you use in the application.

I hope this helps.
