Animating a "pop up" like a page

Dec 23, 2011 at 7:25 PM

Hi all I'm trying to show a pop up in certain cases -- e.g. sign in page or when my game is paused -- and I've opted to embed a UserControl which I hide/show as needed. The problem with this approach is I don't get the lovely page transitions "for free" as I do when navigating between AnimatedBasePage's. So my question is, how can I have my pop ups transition in and out similar to how pages work?

Looking around I have found much help online. I did come across an article by a blog post by Kevin Marshall with some code doing what I want. However, on closer inspection it appears most of the code in the post has been integrated into this project, so I thought someone here may know how to connect the different pieces.

Thanks, Alex
