The default behavior determined by the control’s logic.


If the AllowTransitionAnimation property is set to Default, the behavior is controlled by the WindowsFormsSettings.AnimationMode global setting:

  • for NavigationFrame control, animations are enabled if the global setting equals AnimationMode.Default or AnimationMode.EnableAll;
  • for NavigationPane and TabPane controls, animations are enabled only if the global setting is explicitly set to AnimationMode.EnableAll.

To set the desired animation effect, use the NavigationFrame.TransitionType property.
