Storyboards and Animations


As you have seen, Blend does the heavy lifting when it comes to creating animations and storyboards while you concentrate on manipulating objects on the artboard. In this regard, Blend is a great time-saving tool. However, the default animations produced in Blend may not be ideal in all situations. There are multiple types of animation available to you in Blend/Silverlight, and being aware of the different types will make it easier for you to select the appropriate match for your projects. In this chapter, we will be taking an in-depth look at storyboards and each of the different types of animation provided by Silverlight. To complete the discussion, you will also learn how each type of animation can be written entirely in the code-behind file, with no XAML. Your main take-away should be a deep understanding of the various animation types and how each affects the motion of your objects.
