How to: Anchor Carousel Items to Specific Points

This example shows how to anchor a Carousel's items to specific points along a path.

Items can be anchored to points by specifying a path via the PointPathFunction property. In the example, a complex piece linear function is defined. Items are displayed within points specified by the function.

The following image shows the result:
