Hi Everyone, I have tried converting this piece of code into csharp but have met with some issues. Anyone with ideas as to how this may be done. My current application presently is a tabbed control with an ellipse and a button. Clicking on the button is supposed to animate the ellipse. Thanks

Updates:
Converting
Storyboard.TargetProperty="(UIElement.RenderTransform).(TransformGroup.Children)[3].(TranslateTransform.X)"
to codes is really the issue. I am currently working on moving most of my xaml codes to c sharp so that these storyboards could be used on any element in the application. The whole idea is to take advantage of the api on http://animatedotnet.codeplex.com/.
As regards converting the xaml code to csharp, here is how far I have gone

DoubleAnimationUsingKeyFrames DK = new DoubleAnimationUsingKeyFrames();
TranslateTransform TT = new TranslateTransform();
EasingDoubleKeyFrame ED = new EasingDoubleKeyFrame();
ED.KeyTime = TimeSpan.FromSeconds((0));
ED.Value = 19.50;

ED.KeyTime = TimeSpan.FromSeconds((0.1));
ED.Value = -108;
ED.KeyTime = TimeSpan.FromSeconds((0.3));
ED.Value = -133.5;
ED.KeyTime = TimeSpan.FromSeconds((0.6));
ED.Value = -28.50;
ED.KeyTime = TimeSpan.FromSeconds((0.8));
ED.Value = 18;
ED.KeyTime = TimeSpan.FromSeconds((1.0));
ED.Value = 18;

DK.KeyFrames.Add(ED);
//RenderTransform RT = new RenderTransform();
TransformGroup TG = new TransformGroup();
this.RegisterName(
"TG", TG);
TG.Children.Add(TT);
//TG.Children.Add(DK);
Bal.RenderTransform = TG;

Storyboard.SetTargetName(DK, "TG");
Storyboard.SetTargetProperty(
DK, new PropertyPath(TranslateTransform.XProperty));
//Bal.tras

DoubleAnimationUsingKeyFrames DK2 = new DoubleAnimationUsingKeyFrames();
TranslateTransform TT2 = new TranslateTransform();
EasingDoubleKeyFrame ED2 = new EasingDoubleKeyFrame();
ED.KeyTime = TimeSpan.FromSeconds((0));
ED.Value = -6;

ED.KeyTime = TimeSpan.FromSeconds((0.1));
ED.Value = -46.5;
ED.KeyTime = TimeSpan.FromSeconds((0.3));
ED.Value = -141;
ED.KeyTime = TimeSpan.FromSeconds((0.6));
ED.Value = -154.5;
ED.KeyTime = TimeSpan.FromSeconds((0.8));
ED.Value = -157.5;
ED.KeyTime = TimeSpan.FromSeconds((1.0));
ED.Value = -157.5;

DK.KeyFrames.Add(ED2);
//RenderTransform RT = new RenderTransform();
TransformGroup TG2 = new TransformGroup();
this.RegisterName(
"TG2", TG2);
TG.Children.Add(TT2);
//TG.Children.Add(DK);
Bal.RenderTransform = TG2;

Storyboard.SetTargetName(DK2, "TG2");
Storyboard.SetTargetProperty(
DK2, new PropertyPath(TranslateTransform.YProperty));
testt.Children.Add(DK);
testt.Children.Add(DK2);

Right now this question is incomplete/not a question. First, XAML is a markup language. Usually you don't "convert" it to C#. You can write XAML in your code behind, if that is what you are asking, but it is still going to output the same XAML. You can only use it in the same place you would use this XAML (you can't use it in Windows Forms, for instance). Can you explain what you are trying to accomplish and why? Also, you haven't really shown us any effort. We aren't here to do your job. Let us know where (specifically) you are stuck and we will do our best to help.

Absolutely. Some kind "translation" may make sense though, but OP needs to clearly and formally describe the purpose of it and the required rules of mapping one onto another.

As Tim said, this question really does not make sense because XAML is markup and C# is code.

Potentially, it may make some sense, if strictly formulated. Please see my comment above.
