wpf Button Style DoubleAnimation


Example

The following Window has been created:

<Window x:Class="WPF_Style_Example.MainWindow"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
    xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"
    mc:Ignorable="d" ResizeMode="NoResize"
    Title="MainWindow"
    Height="150" Width="250">
<Grid>
    <Grid.RowDefinitions>
        <RowDefinition/>
        <RowDefinition/>
    </Grid.RowDefinitions>
    <Button Margin="5" Content="Button 1" Width="200"/>
    <Button Margin="5" Grid.Row="1" Content="Button 2" Width="200"/>
</Grid>

A style (created in App.xaml) has been applied to the buttons, which animates the width from 200 to 100 when the mouse enters the control and from 100 to 200 when it leaves:

<Style TargetType="{x:Type Button}">
