CompositeTransform.ScaleX Property

Gets or sets the x-axis scale factor. You can use this property to stretch or shrink an object horizontally.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
public double ScaleX { get; set; }
<CompositeTransform ScaleX="double"/>

Property Value

Type: System.Double
The scale factor along the x-axis. The default is 1.

Dependency property identifier field: ScaleXProperty

Values between 0 and 1 decrease the width of the scaled object; values greater than 1 increase the width of the scaled object. A value of 1 indicates that the object is not scaled in the x-direction.

Negative values flip the scaled object horizontally. Values between 0 and -1 flip the scale object and decrease its width. Values less than -1 flip the object and increase its width. A value of -1 flips the scaled object but does not change its horizontal size.

The local origin point 0,0 for an object can be offset on a Canvas using Canvas.Left and Canvas.Top, but this does not count as a transform; the object retains its own local origin in this case for transformation purposes.
