Animation is no longer a collection of esoteric techniques known only to graphics programmers. With XAML, animation entered the mainstream and has become a vital tool for crafting responsive and engaging user interfaces. In Part 6 of Charles Petzold’s course on XAML, you’ll discover the rich animation support realizable entirely in markup. From the simplest animations targeting render transforms, you’ll move on to the powerful easing functions and sophisticated key-frame animations. As he probes beyond the ordinary animations into unusual techniques, Petzold will inspire you to create your own animated wonders.
