Silverlight has an animation system whereby most properties on user interface elements can be animated – properties like width, height, rotation, color and so on can all be targeted in a consistent way regardless of the type of the content itself. Let's take a look at the basics of animations using Expression Blend.

The animation system is time based rather than frame based and so properties are animated from a value A to a value B over a specified time period with the option to control how the interpolation is done between the start and the end value.
