No? Open a standard Teamsite and focus the main content...
So, how does this work?Some site templates uses the Minimal Download Strategy (MDS) framework. This framework consists of several components working together to only download the changes between the different pages. The main component is the start.aspx application page (as I said, there are more components to make this work). This page is responsible for loading pages from the site using the MDS. I don't want to write an in-depth article about MDS here...our main focus is the animation effect, remember? :) The codebehind of this page is defined in the following class: Microsoft.SharePoint.ApplicationPages.MDSStartPage.
As far as I know, the fade effect is only used for the following placeholders:
Can we disable the animation effect?Yes, we can! (HTML5) web storage is used to enable/disable the animation effect. Below you'll find a couple of commands you can use...
SPAnimation.Settings.EnableAnimation(); //enable animation SPAnimation.Settings.DisableAnimation();//disable animation SPAnimation.Settings.DisableSessionAnimation();//disable animation only for this session ToggleAnimationStatus();//toggle animation SPAnimation.Settings.IsAnimationEnabled(); //check whether animation is enabled
