#779 – Animating a Rotation Transform

Here’s one more example of an animation of a 2D transform.  In this case, we animate a rotation transform of an element so that the element continually spins around.

    <Grid>
        <Label Content="Gambling now legal in Nevada" Background="Plum"
               HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center"
               Padding="20,10" FontSize="16"
               RenderTransformOrigin="0.5,0.5">
            <Label.RenderTransform>
                <RotateTransform x:Name="rotTransform" />
            </Label.RenderTransform>
            <Label.Triggers>
                <EventTrigger RoutedEvent="Label.Loaded">
                    <BeginStoryboard>
                        <Storyboard>
                            <DoubleAnimation Storyboard.TargetName="rotTransform"
                                             Storyboard.TargetProperty="Angle"
                                             From="0" To="360" Duration="0:0:2.5"
                                             RepeatBehavior="Forever"/>
                        </Storyboard>
                    </BeginStoryboard>
                </EventTrigger>
            </Label.Triggers>
        </Label>
    </Grid>
