The Windows 10 Creators Update marks the third major release of the Windows UI platform APIs. With each release, an attempt is frequently made to simplify features introduced in prior releases. This encourages Universal Windows Platform (UWP) developers to standardize on these features. The new hide and show implicit animations are shown below:
Page transitions, often accompanied by state transitions as visual elements, are added to the visual tree of the new page. In fact, a lot of interactivity in UWP simply involves deciding which content to show and which content to hide as the state of the app changes. More often than not, this is tied to changing the value of the Visibility properties of the elements on the screen.
With the Creators Update, on the other hand, you have lots of new superpowers to personalize your transitions with:
- Coordinated animations
- Custom animations
- Better image animations
There are more exciting visual animations available from the Creators Update that developers need to take advantage of and play around with. Soon, the flat and boring Windows 10 UI will turn into an eye-catching, visually stimulating environment that makes user experience more intuitive.
