How to animate along a path in windows store app? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to animate an arrow along with a path (from a text) to simulate hand writing. 

    but now DoubleAnimationUsingPath is not supported, what's the alternative way I can try? 

    There is one solution I think it will work. It is I could have a blank canvas and wire up a timer, each interval I will draw a dot in the canvas and form a text. It's going to a huge pain for me to test all the text I want to simulate writing. It must have a better way to do this.

  • The trick is computing the path. It's not clear how you have that set up, but at some level you'll need to do your own computations. You can do a DoubleAnimation over a Property saying how far along the path you are.
