Timelines and animations, a question for the audience

Boost IT visibility and business value

Imagine Cup One of the things we've been playing around with lately is the animations used in Windows Presentation Foundation.

We wanted a simple way to reverse an animation which we'd dynamically manipulate to contain new content for the Digital Recovery Environment. We're using Expressions and we noticed an option to reverse key frames in the Timeline window when you right click a key frame.

No matter what we tried it always seemed to be greyed out. Unable to use that feature we tried to duplicate the timeline; lo and behold that option was also greyed out. Finally ,we discovered that if we took the animation, set AutoReverse to true, began the animation with the controllable overload and then skipped to the end of the timeline we got the reverse effect we were looking for.

Our question to you guys: do you know of an easy way to do this? ®
