Using the Panorama control , it is possible to design panels similar to Windows start menu panel. But I It would be even better if there had been a fade-in effect for tiles when appearing for the first time. I attached a gif image that I recorded from my Windows 8.1 start menu panel to illustrate what I'm talking about.
P.S I tried making tiles invisible and then making them visible one by one , like every 10 milliseconds, through rows and columns of groups in the control. Not bad, but changing visibility this way isn't smooth as the fade-in effect .
Any trick ?
