I am using a visualstatemanager to animate a grid containing help information between a closed visualstate (collapsed and opacity 0) and an open visualstate (visible and opacity 1) and back in response to button clicks. The behavior I am seeing is
that normally this animation works fine. However, intermittently the grid when animating to a closed state changes opacity to 0 but remains in a visible state (I have confirmed this using the Snoop tool). In my app this prevents interaction with
the button used to close the help information (as it is on the invisible gird) as well as with any of the other controls that appear on the user control underneath the help grid.
As you see from the control below this is all managed with declarative xaml and does not involve complex prism or other eventing logic.
In my App.xaml.cs file I am handling the AppDispatcherUnhandledException event, and no unhandled exception is being trapped, so I can't find an exception that is causing the issue.
Here's the declaration of the help control, including the button that triggers the close animation. Instance of this control are used throughout my application for various features.
