Animation Examples

I've provided three ways to perform animation (alteration of a property over time):

  1. Use a DispatcherTimer (not a recommended practice)
  2. Use of a rendering engine hook: CompositionTarget Rendering event
  3. Use of the built in support for Animation in XAML

One more disclaimer, I decided to use a FontSize animation for dramatic effect, but you really should avoid changes in FontSize due to the overhead of reevaluation of font rendering...
