this might sounds very simple, but I couldn't find a way to do it.
I just want a blinking text in TextBlock. Is there a way to do it easily?
The only way I can think of is to use timer and change the TextBlock foreground manually. Surely there is an easy way to do it. I am just not able to figure it out.
You could declare a
Storyboard animation in your XAML markup which blinks the text forever:
<TextBlock Text="I'm Blinking!"> <TextBlock.Style> <Style TargetType="TextBlock"> <Style.Resources> <Storyboard x:Key="flashAnimation" > <DoubleAnimation Storyboard.TargetProperty="Opacity" From="1" To="0" AutoReverse="True" Duration="0:0:0.5" RepeatBehavior="Forever" /> </Storyboard> </Style.Resources> </Style> </TextBlock.Style> </TextBlock>
This is using my experience from WPF and WinRT XAML, but I'm pretty sure that UWP uses the same
Here's Microsoft's handy reference on MSDN: Animations Overview.
Hope this helps!
