Animation Container

The UI for Blazor suite provides the Animation Container component that you can use to create messages and popups such as notifications or expandable containers. It lets you define its animation, size and position, and arbitrary content.

To use the animation container, add the TelerikAnimationContainer tag.

How to use the Animation Container

@using Telerik.Blazor.Components.AnimationContainer
@using Telerik.Blazor.Components.Button
@using Telerik.Blazor

<TelerikAnimationContainer @ref="myPopupRef" Top="300px" Width="100px" Height="100px" AnimationType="AnimationType.ZoomOut" Class="k-popup">
    My content goes here. The "k-popup" class adds some background and borders which you can define through your own styles instead.

<TelerikButton OnClick="@ToggleContainer">Toggle Animation Container</TelerikButton>

@code {
    Telerik.Blazor.Components.AnimationContainer.TelerikAnimationContainer myPopupRef;

    public void ToggleContainer()

The animation container exposes the following properties and methods:

  • Show(), Hide() and Toggle() - to control whether the container is shown.
  • Width and Height - to control its size.
  • Top and Left - to control its offset from its parent with special positioning (relative, absolute, fixed).
  • AnimationType and AnimationDuration to control the way it is shown and hidden. The animation duration is in milliseconds (defaults to 300), and the type is of the Telerik.Blazor.AnimationType enum with the following options:
    • SlideUp,
    • SlideIn,
    • SlideDown,
    • SlideRight,
    • SlideLeft,
    • PushUp,
    • PushDown,
    • PushLeft,
    • PushRight,
    • Fade,
    • ZoomIn,
    • ZoomOut
  • ShowDelay and HideDelay - to set how much time will pass between toggling the Visible property and the actual change of the container state. When the Visible property is set to true, the ShowDelay timer counts and then the container shows. When Visible is set to false, the HideDelay timer starts and then the container hides. Both values are in milliseconds and default to 20.
  • Class - a CSS class rendered on the container DOM element.
