Summary0001182: App crash/hang with "Target Not Found" error when trying to stop storyboard in the same frame it's already started
DescriptionNoesis 2.1 beta4
Took us several days to debug due to crash (will open separate bug.) I'm trying to port the TiltEffect from Windows Phone to Noesis. The effect "tilts" a tile when you tap and hold it with finger and "releases" the tilt back to normal via custom animation set in code.
Long story short, there are many places in the code where we call storyboard.Stop(...) on already stopped storyboard and sometimes there are calls of Begin() and Stop() in the same frame.
The issue is that Noesis shows "target not found" error if you try to do storyboard.IsPlaying() or storyboard.Stop() on a storyboard that has just been started (sometimes several lines above in code)
I marked as severity Major since we've been trying to get this to work for months (even though we spend in total of several days, but have been putting it on the backburner) and didn't realize what the core of the issue is until now.
Steps To Reproduce1. Create new 3D project in Unity
2. Add Noesis
3. At end of ButtonsViewModel.cs from the samples add this, also attached:
public class Test
        private static Storyboard story;
        public static void PrepareTiltReturnStoryboard(Button button)
            if (story != null)
                story.Stop(); // all OK
                story = null;
                button.Projection = new PlaneProjection();

                // setup animation
                Storyboard story = new Storyboard();
                story.Completed += (sender, args) => { button.Content = "done"; };
                DoubleAnimation anim = new DoubleAnimation();
                Storyboard.SetTargetProperty(anim, new PropertyPath("(UIElement.Projection).(PlaneProjection.RotationZ)"));
                anim.To = 45;
                anim.Duration = System.TimeSpan.FromSeconds(2);

                Storyboard.SetTarget(anim, button);
                story.Begin(button, true);
                if (story.IsPlaying()) // ERROR: this code will show "Target Not Found" crash in Unity log
                    story.Stop(); // this code will show "Target not Found" too in case the if() is removed

4. In Buttons.xaml.cs update OnInitialized() to this:
        private void OnInitialized(object sender, EventArgs args)
            this.DataContext = new ButtonsViewModel(FindName("StartButton") as Button);
5. On top of ButtonsViewModel get the _startButton:
        private Button _startButton;
        public ButtonsViewModel(Button startButton)
            _startButton = startButton;
            StartCommand = new DelegateCommand(this.Start);
            SettingsCommand = new DelegateCommand(this.Settings);
            ExitCommand = new DelegateCommand(this.Exit);

        public DelegateCommand StartCommand { get; private set; }
        public DelegateCommand SettingsCommand { get; private set; }
        public DelegateCommand ExitCommand { get; private set; }

        private void Start(object parameter)
            Debug.Log("Start Game");
6. Run Buttons sample and press Start
all OK
Actual: Noesis exception in Unity log on the story.IsPlaying() line
Sometime Noesis crashes after some time (seconds, maybe minute?)
Noesis.dll caused an Access Violation (0xc0000005)
  in module Noesis.dll at 0033:d5c2bbfd.

Additional InformationUnity crash reproduces about 50% of the time, the app hang/exception happens 100% of the time.

We fixed the crash and improved the error messages related to Storyboard playing.

In this particular scenario, though, the correct way of calling IsPlaying() is providing the same target used to start the animation, otherwise it won't be able to find the corresponding animation Clock created for playing the animation:

if (story.IsPlaying(button))
