PageGroup containers can display only one Document at a time. Navigating from one Document to another is coupled with animation effects. To set whether this animation is enabled for all PageGroups within the WindowsUIView, use the UseTransitionAnimation property.

If the navigation animation is enabled, you can use the IPageGroupProperties.SwitchDocumentAnimationMode property to specify its type (fade in, horizontal or vertical slide) or the IPageGroupProperties.SwitchDocumentAnimationFrameInterval and IPageGroupProperties.SwitchDocumentAnimationFramesCount properties to specify its duration.
