TextEffectTarget Class

Result from using TextEffectResolver to set an effect on text. This consists of the TextEffect created and the DependencyObject to which the TextEffect should be set.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Documents
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
public class TextEffectTarget
You cannot directly create an instance of this class in XAML.

The following example shows how to apply a TranslateTransform, ScaleTransform, and RotateTransform text effect to text. Below is the XAML for the example.

<Page  
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    x:Class="SDKSample.TextEffectTargetExample"
    Title="TextBlock Properties Sample">

  <StackPanel>

    <RadioButton Click="teTranslate" Margin="5,0,5,0">TranslateTransform</RadioButton>
    <RadioButton Click="teScale" Margin="5,0,5,0">ScaleTransform</RadioButton>
    <RadioButton Click="teRotate" Margin="5,0,5,0">RotateTransform</RadioButton>

    <TextBlock Background="LightGray" TextWrapping="Wrap" Name="tb1">
      Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit.
      Nam laoreet dolor et dolor. Vestibulum quis nunc auctor ante dignissim venenatis. Curabitur wisi.
      Donec faucibus auctor ipsum. In fermentum dui.  Ut suscipit aliquam eros. Nullam elementum quam eu
      enim. Sed a purus id nisl imperdiet blandit. Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis dis parturient
      montes, nascetur ridiculus mus. Sed at quam.
    </TextBlock>

  </StackPanel>

            // 50,50.
