Hamishwillee - References References References

Hi Somnath

For me this is a really good example of why you need to provide references. In this case its not enough to provide links to API items - you need to link to the overviews for animation so that people can get the broad overview of animation that you're not going to provide in a simple example. I've done this by adding the SeeAlso section.

You need to do this because the article is very limited - a person reading about this will know that it is possible to animate on behaviours in Qt using SmoothAnimation and similar on WP for silverlight using a Storyboard. However this isn't enough for them to understand their options, or even that there are other animation options. I think you need to say a bit more about animating on Behaviour - what is actually going on here - you declare the Behaviour on X, y, and when these values change, the animation declared is used to move to the new position. Similar for WP. What are the other options to using storyboard?

I guess I'm saying that its not very useful just to compare code chunks. This shows one aspect of one way of doing something - it doesn't help people understand how to do something "similar" themselves. You need to provide a bit more background
