First, thank you for your time.

I need to place numerous Image controls on an InkCanvas. All of them need to animate when certain code conditions are met. After numerous attempts my ControlTemplate is still not right.

<ControlTemplate x:Key="AnimatedImage" TargetType="{x:Type Image}">
    <Grid>
        <Image Name="image" 
               Source="{TemplateBinding Filename}"
               Width="{TemplateBinding Width}"
               Height="{TemplateBinding Height}"
               HorizontalAlignment="Center"
               VerticalAlignment="Center">

            <VisualStateManager.VisualStateGroups>
                <VisualStateGroup Name="AnimationLocations">

                    <!-- When the image is first loaded move it to the center of the InkCanvas -->
                    <VisualState Name="AnimateToCenterScreen">
                        <Storyboard>
                            <DoubleAnimation Storyboard.TargetName="image"
                                             Storyboard.TargetProperty="(Image.RenderTransform).(TranslateTransform.X)"
                                             From="{TemplateBinding From}"
                                             To="{TemplateBinding To}"
                                             Duration="{TemplateBinding Duration}" />
                        </Storyboard>
                    </VisualState>

                    <!-- Animate the image to an off screen position to effectively hide it.  -->
                    <VisualState Name="AnimateToOffScreen">
                        <!-- To be filled in later.  -->
                    </VisualState>

                    <!-- Animate the image back to the original on screen position.  -->
                    <VisualState Name="AnimateToOnScreen">
                        <!-- To be filled in later.  -->
                    </VisualState>
                </VisualStateGroup>
            </VisualStateManager.VisualStateGroups>
        </Image>
    </Grid>

Open in new window


And my main grid looks like this:
<Grid>
    <InkCanvas Name="inkCanvas" 
                         EditingMode="{Binding EditingMode}" 
                         MoveEnabled="True" 
                         HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" 
                         VerticalAlignment="Stretch" 
                         ResizeEnabled="True" >

            <Image Name="image1" 
                          Template="{StaticResource AnimatedImage}"
                          Source="{Binding Path=Image1}" 
                          HorizontalAlignment="Center" 
                          VerticalAlignment="Center" >
            </Image>
    </InkCanvas>
</Grid>

Open in new window


What is wrong?
Thank you for your time.
