Creating Animations with Visual Basic

Maybe you understood that XAML is the best way for creating, customizing, and managing visual elements. Writing VB code is something that you should practice only when there is an effective need to apply effects at runtime. This can also be the case of animations. The code in Listing 30.8 shows how to create at runtime a new button and how to apply an animation that increases and decreases the button’s height. The code is not difficult to understand when you have a clear idea of the sequence of elements required within an animation.
