The Actipro WPF Shared Library contains a number of animated transition controls and effects are available for use in your application to give it some extra flair.
The transition classes are extensible and provide the foundation for page transitions in our
Wizard for WPF product.
The contents may be any object type and can optionally use a DataTemplate or a DataTemplateSelector to build the user interface for the objects.

Default transition effect directions and durations may be specified.
A default mode is used to indicate to a TransitionSelector whether selected transitions that support the mode concept should be In (the default) or Out transitions.
Out transitions are generally used when making backwards progress through a sequence of items.
A single transition can be used or programmatic logic may be implemented to determine which transitions to use.
An included transition selector allows for random selection of a transition from a list of transitions.
Built-in Transition Effects
There are several built-in transition effects available.
Many of the built-in transitions support multiple directions and have an in/out mode concept.
This list shows the built-in transitions:
Barn door wipe - A wipe transition between two pages that uses two straight bars with a configurable gradient spread.
Bar wipe - A wipe transition between two pages that uses a straight bar with a configurable gradient spread.
Box wipe - A wipe transition between two pages that uses a box.
Fade - The old selected page fades into the new one with optional blur effect.
Faded zoom - A crossfade transition between two elements that zooms the new content in as well.
Four box wipe - A wipe transition between two pages that uses four boxes.
Slide - A slide transition between two pages that moves one page over the other.
Push - A slide transition between two pages that pushes one page out of the way for the other.
Wedge wipe - A wipe transition between two pages that uses a wedge shape.

Custom Transition Effects
Custom transitions can easily be created programmatically or via XAML.
Shader Transition Effects
In addition to the built-in transition effects, transitions from the WPF Pixel Shader Effects Library can also be easily integrated.
