Property Value

The PopupAnimation enumeration value that defines an animation to open and close a Popup control. The default is None.



The following example shows how to set the PopupAnimation property.

myPopup.AllowsTransparency = true;
myPopup.AllowsTransparency = True
<DockPanel  Width="500" Background="Aqua">
  <Popup Placement="Center" PlacementRectangle="0,0,30,50"  
          IsOpen ="True" AllowsTransparency="True"
    <TextBlock Background="Purple">Popup Text</TextBlock>
myTextBlockPopup.PopupAnimation = PopupAnimation.Fade;
myTextBlockPopup.PopupAnimation = PopupAnimation.Fade


A Popup can only animate when the AllowsTransparency property is set to true. This requires the application that creates the Popup control to run with full trust.

If the PlacementTarget is animated, the Popup will not be animated.
