Specifies the animation preset used when the placeholder's content is being changed.
A layout markup may contain several content placeholders. If you need to show the contents of all of them at once with a particular animation, you do not need to set the animation option for each of the placeholders. You should wrap the placeholders by an element with the data-options attribute set to dxTransition instead and specify its animation option.
If the content that will be rendered to this placeholder has static positioning (its css position property is set to 'static'), set this option to 'static' as well, so that the placeholder css styles are set up accordingly.
Use the animation property instead.
