Find element inside rectangle.


  • Here is some XAML

    <Rectangle Name="rec" Fill="White" Stroke="#FF000000" Width="90" Height="15" RadiusX="4" RadiusY="4">



    <Storyboard Name="rectangleStoryboard" Storyboard.TargetName="animatingGradientStop" Storyboard.TargetProperty="Color" >

    <ColorAnimation From="Black" To="White" Duration="0:0:2" AutoReverse="True" RepeatBehavior="Forever" />


    <Storyboard Name="StoryBoardTop" Storyboard.TargetName="rectangle" Storyboard.TargetProperty="(Canvas.Top)">

    <DoubleAnimation Name="animationTop" Duration ="0:0:1" />


    So I would like to find


    but without having to use "animationTop"

    I would like to get the sotryboard element from the sender without using the name since I'm going to have multiple of these and i don't want to reference by name.

    My other option would be to have duplicate Names. From what I read this is possible by associateing a chunk of objects with namescopes by using the followinng control.Content.CreateFromXaml and passing True for the second parameter. But how can i accomplish this without having to use the method CreatFromXaml?


    Thank you

  • If you know the sequence of the DoubleAnimation in storyboard then you can call them without name property

    In your case,

  • Ok when canvas is clicked I'm able to get to the rectangle inside canvas by sender.children.GetItem(0) that's no problem. But how do I get to the property elements usind index not name?

    I don't think StoryBoardTop.Children(0) is even valid.
