Animating Tile Panel (an excuse to download the WinXP Nov CTP)


I’ve been sitting on this demo a few weeks, so I’m excited to finally share the code publicly.

Go down the the WinFX Runtime Components – November CTP

The latest release includes a simple, static event: CompositionTarget.Rendering. This simple event will give you call every frame. What does this enable? Some sweet animated effects.

I basically took Dan’s Tile Panel and updated it to use CompositionTarget.Rendering, private attached properties, and a little high school physics. The results are pretty cool.

Since it’s just a Panel, you can put anything you want in it: Shapes, Controls, Images. Images look really cool.

  1. We’re not nearly as entertaining as Don and Chris, but Robby and I are in another video on Channel 9…

  2. Ok, it took me a lot longer to get to this, but I finally have a post about a better way to do layout…
