Animations

RadSplashScreen provides two built-in animations - one for opening and one for closing of the screen.

The default animations are fade-in and fade-out. To change them, set the ShowAnimation and HideAnimation static properties of the RadSplashScreenManager class.

You can set the properties to any animation object that derives from RadAnimation.

Example 1: Replacing the default show and hide animations

RadSplashScreenManager.ShowAnimation = new ScaleAnimation() { MinScale = 0.1, MaxScale = 0.9, Duration = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(2) }; 
RadSplashScreenManager.HideAnimation = new ScaleAnimation() { MinScale = 0.9, MaxScale = 0.1, Duration = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(2) }; 
 
if (!RadSplashScreenManager.IsSplashScreenActive) 
{ 
    RadSplashScreenManager.Show(); 
} 

Disable Animations

To disable the animations, set the corresponding property (ShowAnimation or HideAnimation) to null.

Example 2: Disabling animations

RadSplashScreenManager.ShowAnimation = null; 
RadSplashScreenManager.HideAnimation = null; 
 
if (!RadSplashScreenManager.IsSplashScreenActive) 
{ 
    RadSplashScreenManager.Show(); 
} 

Change Animations Speed

To change the speed of the show and hide animations, set the SpeedRatio property of the RadAnimation object.

Example 3: Changing the speed of the animations

RadSplashScreenManager.ShowAnimation = new FadeAnimation { SpeedRatio = 0.2d };  
RadSplashScreenManager.HideAnimation = new FadeAnimation { SpeedRatio = 0.8d }; 
 
if (!RadSplashScreenManager.IsSplashScreenActive) 
{ 
    RadSplashScreenManager.Show(); 
}
