ASP.Net AJAX Animations

Some of the best resources for the animation framework that comes with the ASP.Net AJAX Control Toolkit can be found at the live toolkit site at this Sample Site. I often look at the Animation Reference section of this site.

While adding animations to ASP.Net pages, it is sometimes necessary to call animations directly from Javascript code. This can be achieved relatively easily using the great instructions at this MSDN blog.

Combined with the Animation Reference on website, any animation can be called directly from Javascript. If you can’t use the <OnLoad> animation event handler in the AnimationExtender control, one way to play animations on the page load is to use ClientScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript to create a function with the animation code, and call that function on the next line.

Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType, “PlayLoadAnimation”, “function playNotificationAnimation(){$get(“”divNotification””) , 1 , 30 , “”style”” , “”backgroundColor”” , “”#181840″” , “”#E9E8FF””); }”, True)

Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType, “LoadAnimationFunction”, “playNotificationAnimation();”, True)

Happy Animating!
