Hello all,

I am trying to look at the best pattern to implement this in MVVM/WPF/PRISM.  I want to be able to start a transition/animation everytime a new view, regardless if it is existing view I am using non-linear navigation, or a new view. 

What is the best pattern to accomplish this?

A simple example would be greatly appreciated.

As far as I know, Prism does not provide guidance or specific functionality regarding animated transitions between UI components.

As a starting point, you can check the Stock Trader RI which uses an AnimatedTabControl or the State-Based Navigation QuickStart which do not use regions, but switch between UI elements using animated transitions.

Also, I believe you might find the following threads interesting where similar topics were discussed:
