Please note that as of October 24, 2014, the Nokia Developer Wiki will no longer be accepting user contributions, including new entries, edits and comments, as we begin transitioning to our new home, in the Windows Phone Development Wiki. We plan to move over the majority of the existing entries. Thanks for all your past and future contributions.
A Sprite is a basic visual element that can be rendered with one of several frames stored in an Image; different frames can be shown to animate the Sprite. Several transforms such as flipping and rotation can also be applied to a Sprite to further vary its appearance. As with all Layer subclasses, a Sprite's location can be changed and it can also be made visible or invisible.
