Hi All,

Are there any built in transition effects in the WPF suite? In the demo, there is a transition between categories of demo's.. the panel pulls back and rotates. Are there any existing control like that available with a choice of transition effects?

Thanks

Hello hchattaway,

There is no such a control, that you can use for such a transition animation. Please find the attached animation used in our online examples.

Kind regards,

Hi Kaloyan,

That's a nice example thank you. What if I wanted to create a button in both of the pages removing the button from MainPage.xaml.

How could I use the same effect?

I create a public function that I call from each of the buttons

  public void ChangePage() 
        { 
            var content = ExampleContainer.Content as Page; 
 
            var targetPage = content is Page1 ? new Page2() as Page : new Page1() as Page; 
 
            this.ExampleContainer.NavigateToExample(targetPage); 
        } 

However if I place a breakpoint on [var content] then pass over it, null is been returned. 

What do I need to change?

Thanks for your help!

Hello Shane Price,

We are not sure what might be causing the problem. Also with the Q1 2010 Beta release this week we are launching a new transition control that is exposing such kind of transition animation. You can directly use it without any code transformations.

Sincerely yours,

Thanks for your reply. I look forward to seeing this new control. Is there any information available yet to read on the new control?

This is my code 

public partial class MainPage : Page 
    { 
        public MainPage() 
        { 
            InitializeComponent(); 
        } 
 
        public MainPage(Page page) 
        { 
            InitializeComponent(); 
            ChangePage(page); 
        } 
 
        private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) 
        { 
            var content = ExampleContainer.Content as Page; 
            var targetPage = content is Page1 ? new Page2() as Page : new Page1() as Page; 
            ChangePage(targetPage); 
        } 
 
        public void ChangePage(Page page) 
        { 
            var content = ExampleContainer.Content as Page; 
 
 
            switch (page.Title) 
            { 
                case "Page1"
                      var targetPage = new Page1()  as Page; 
                this.ExampleContainer.NavigateToExample(targetPage); 
                    break
                case "Page2"
                 var page2 = new Page2()  as Page; 
                this.ExampleContainer.NavigateToExample(page2); 
                    break
            } 
             
//            var targetPage = content is Page1 ? new Page2() as Page : new Page1() as Page; 
 
           
        } 
    } 


from Page1 where I am trying to call the tr

    public partial class Page1 : Page 
    { 
        public Page1() 
        { 
            InitializeComponent(); 
        } 
 
        private void btnRed_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) 
        { 
            //var myValue = (Frame)parent.FindName("ExampleContainer"); 
            //////MainPage mp = new MainPage(); 
            //////mp.ChangePage(); 
            //var content = parent.Content as Page; 
            //var targetPage = content is Page1 ? new Page2() as Page : new Page1() as Page; 
            ////this.content.NavigateToExample(targetPage); 
            MainPage mp = new MainPage(new Page2()); 
        } 
 
 
    } 
 



Nothing happens. Am I doing something really stupid?

Thanks
Shane
