Animate image on extended splash screen RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    W10 Mobile offers to make extended splashscreen. I use Template10 and their guideline to make extended splashscreen. I have 3 images of sizes: 620x300, 1240x600, 2480x1200px. Extended splashscreen is working fine, but I'would like to animate the image from center to bottom. Here is the code of setting up the image:

    SplashScreenImage.SetValue(Canvas.LeftProperty, SplashScreen.ImageLocation.X);
                SplashScreenImage.SetValue(Canvas.TopProperty, SplashScreen.ImageLocation.Y);
                if (Windows.Foundation.Metadata.ApiInformation.IsTypePresent("Windows.Phone.UI.Input.HardwareButtons"))
                    SplashScreenImage.Height = SplashScreen.ImageLocation.Height / ScaleFactor;
                    SplashScreenImage.Width = SplashScreen.ImageLocation.Width / ScaleFactor;
                    SplashScreenImage.Height = SplashScreen.ImageLocation.Height;
                    SplashScreenImage.Width = SplashScreen.ImageLocation.Width;

    Height is 731 effective pixels and Width is 411 effective pixels. But the image is center, and I would like to get the sizes of centered image. I'm not sure, what Windows does. If he scales the image.

    Thanks for help

  • Hi JP_Developer,

    You could add Storyboard which includes Animation to Resources and Set the “From” and “To” of the Animation . For example:


       <Canvas x:Name="c1" Grid.Row="0" Grid.RowSpan="2">
                <Storyboard x:Key="storyboard">
                    <DoubleAnimation Storyboard.TargetName="extendedSplashImage"
                                 From="1" To="200" Duration="0:0:3" />
            <Image x:Name="extendedSplashImage" Source="Assets/splash-sdk.png"/>


    	    extendedSplashImage.SetValue(Canvas.LeftProperty, splashImageRect.Left);
                extendedSplashImage.SetValue(Canvas.TopProperty, splashImageRect.Top);
                if (Windows.Foundation.Metadata.ApiInformation.IsTypePresent("Windows.Phone.UI.Input.HardwareButtons"))
                    extendedSplashImage.Height = splashImageRect.Height / ScaleFactor;
                    extendedSplashImage.Width = splashImageRect.Width / ScaleFactor;
                    extendedSplashImage.Height = splashImageRect.Height;
                    extendedSplashImage.Width = splashImageRect.Width;
                var story1 = c1.Resources["storyboard"] as Storyboard;
                DoubleAnimation anima = story1.Children[0] as DoubleAnimation;
                anima.From = splashImageRect.Top; 
                anima.To= 731 - extendedSplashImage.Height;
