    ok I had a RadTransitionControl that when I click a button I set its content which im guessing should force it to play an animation/transition

    so here it what I do and what happens

    spRunMenu.Visibility = System.Windows.Visibility.Visible;
    rtcRunMenu.Content = spRunMenu;

    spRunMenu is a stackpanel containing buttons.
    rtcRunMenu is the RadTransitionControl

    I get the following message when setting the content.

    System.ArgumentException was unhandled by user code
      Message=Value does not fall within the expected range.

    Hello Gareth,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    This behavior is normal. The Content property is used to display a certain object and place it inside the DataTemplate specified as ContentTemplate. In order to set a StackPanel inside the TransitionControl, you need to use the ContentTemplate property and set a new DataTemplate to it. Here is an example, if you add a template to the resources of the page:
    <DataTemplate x:Name="template1">
            <Button Content="one" Click="Button_Click"/>
            <Button Content="{Binding}"/>

    You can then use it and set it as ContentTemplate to the TransitionControl:
    transitionControl.ContentTemplate = this.Resources["template1"] as DataTemplate;
    transitionControl.Content = "button 1";

    I hope this information helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
