VisualStateManager, DiscreteObjectKeyFrame.KeyTime and Default transitions RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to figure out how to play ObjectAnimationUsingKeyFrames at the beginning of the transition.

    Let's say I have a default state and other state.

    In other state VIsualState I have something like (Blend 2013 generated):

    <ObjectAnimationUsingKeyFrames Storyboard.TargetProperty="(UIElement.Visibility)" Storyboard.TargetName="border">
    							<DiscreteObjectKeyFrame KeyTime="0">
    Note the KeyTime="0".

    And I have set the Default transition to 1s.

    I'd expect Visiblity to change immediately, but that isn't the case. Instead it is changed only at the end of transition (after 1s). If I set a higher KeyTime then it is played that much time *after* transition ended.

    So, the question is whether is possible to play that at the beginning of the transition using Default transitions.

  • Hi Miha,

    I'm not sure if it is possible with XAML but always possible with code, for example when the animation finished, we can have the Completed event fire and we can execute the transition.
