public bool IsAnimated { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

true if a Document‘s tab icon is currently animated; otherwise, false.


You can set an animated icon for document tab headers via the BaseDocument.Image property.

If an animated picture is used as a Document‘s icon, you can specify if its animation is allowed or not. The IDocumentProperties.AllowAnimation property manages icon animation availability for all tab icons within the View. You can override these settings for individual Documents via the IDocumentDefaultProperties.AllowAnimation property.

Use the TabbedView.StartAnimation and TabbedView.StopAnimation methods to start and stop icon animation. These methods are also available for individual Documents (see Document.StartAnimation and Document.StopAnimation).

Use the IsAnimated property to determine if a tab icon animation for the specific Document is currently running. You can also use the IDocumentDefaultProperties.CanAnimate property to determine if icon animation is allowed.
