In this article I am going to demonstrate that how to use simple animation in Silverlight by using Visual Studio 2010. For creating any animation in Silverlight you have to perform two tasks. First create a StoryBoard object and set some properties to that object then create an object in which you want to apply story board.

Following XAML code represent demonstration of Animation in Silverlight
<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
        <Grid.Resources>
            <Storyboard x:Name="storyBoard">
                <DoubleAnimation Storyboard.TargetName="rotateTransform" Storyboard.TargetProperty="Angle" From="0" To="360" Duration="0:0:5"
                                 RepeatBehavior="Forever" AutoReverse="True" />
            </Storyboard>
        </Grid.Resources>
        <Rectangle Fill="LightBlue" x:Name="rectangle" Height="100" Width="100">
            <Rectangle.RenderTransform>
                <RotateTransform x:Name="rotateTransform" />
            </Rectangle.RenderTransform>
        </Rectangle>
</Grid>
Save application and execute it.
