Lesson 32 - Animations in C# .NET - Path Animations, Definitions & More

In the last lesson, Animations in C# .NET - Discrete And Spline Keyframes, we learned to use other keyframe-based animations, namely discrete and spline animations.

3 - Path animations

The path-defined animation is an animation that uses a PathGeometry as input. You probably already know that marking a path is especially useful if we want to move something. Instead of setting a "From" or "To" property, or using keyframes, we define a geometric path and use it to set PathGeometry property of the path animation. As the path animation progresses, it reads the x, y, and angle information from the path and uses that information to generate its output.

Let's look at a sample Path animation in the application for download:


We'll use our rectangle again to animate the movement:
