In the Cascades framework, one way to animate UI controls is to change their visual properties. You can animate an image of a ball moving across the screen by changing the position properties of the image, or you can spin a button by changing the button's rotation property. You can also animate controls using properties such as size, scale, and opacity.

Cascades automatically produces smooth, fluid animations based on your changes. These animations are called implicit animations. You can also use another type of animation, called explicit animations, to manually control the properties of animations in your apps.

You can learn more about implicit and explicit animations by visiting the links below. You can also follow a tutorial that teaches you how to create a demonstration app that uses animations.
