public sealed class TranslateTransform : Transform
<TranslateTransform .../>

The TranslateTransform type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodTranslateTransform()Initializes a new instance of the TranslateTransform class.
Public methodTranslateTransform(Double, Double)Initializes a new instance of the TranslateTransform class and specifies the displacements in the direction of the x- and y- axes.

  NameDescription
Public propertyCanFreezeGets a value that indicates whether the object can be made unmodifiable. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Public propertyDependencyObjectTypeGets the DependencyObjectType that wraps the CLR type of this instance.  (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public propertyDispatcherGets the Dispatcher this DispatcherObject is associated with. (Inherited from DispatcherObject.)
Public propertyHasAnimatedPropertiesGets a value that indicates whether one or more AnimationClock objects is associated with any of this object's dependency properties. (Inherited from Animatable.)
Public propertyInverseGets the inverse of this transform, if it exists. (Inherited from Transform.)
Public propertyIsFrozenGets a value that indicates whether the object is currently modifiable. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Public propertyIsSealedGets a value that indicates whether this instance is currently sealed (read-only). (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public propertyValueGets a Matrix representation of this TranslateTransform. (Overrides Transform.Value.)
Public propertyXGets or sets the distance to translate along the x-axis.
Public propertyYGets or sets the distance to translate (move) an object along the y-axis.

  NameDescription
Public methodApplyAnimationClock(DependencyProperty, AnimationClock)Applies an AnimationClock to the specified DependencyProperty. If the property is already animated, the SnapshotAndReplace handoff behavior is used. (Inherited from Animatable.)
Public methodApplyAnimationClock(DependencyProperty, AnimationClock, HandoffBehavior)Applies an AnimationClock to the specified DependencyProperty. If the property is already animated, the specified HandoffBehavior is used. (Inherited from Animatable.)
Public methodBeginAnimation(DependencyProperty, AnimationTimeline)Applies an animation to the specified DependencyProperty. The animation is started when the next frame is rendered. If the specified property is already animated, the SnapshotAndReplace handoff behavior is used. (Inherited from Animatable.)
Public methodBeginAnimation(DependencyProperty, AnimationTimeline, HandoffBehavior)Applies an animation to the specified DependencyProperty. The animation is started when the next frame is rendered. If the specified property is already animated, the specified HandoffBehavior is used. (Inherited from Animatable.)
Public methodCheckAccessDetermines whether the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject. (Inherited from DispatcherObject.)
Public methodClearValue(DependencyProperty)Clears the local value of a property. The property to be cleared is specified by a DependencyProperty identifier. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodClearValue(DependencyPropertyKey)Clears the local value of a read-only property. The property to be cleared is specified by a DependencyPropertyKey. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodCloneCreates a modifiable copy of this TranslateTransform by making deep copies of its values.
Public methodCloneCurrentValueCreates a modifiable copy of this TranslateTransform object by making deep copies of its values. This method does not copy resource references, data bindings, and animations, although it does copy their current values.
Public methodCoerceValueCoerces the value of the specified dependency property. This is accomplished by invoking any CoerceValueCallback function specified in property metadata for the dependency property as it exists on the calling DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodEqualsDetermines whether a provided DependencyObject is equivalent to the current DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodFreeze()Makes the current object unmodifiable and sets its IsFrozen property to true. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Public methodGetAnimationBaseValueReturns the non-animated value of the specified DependencyProperty. (Inherited from Animatable.)
Public methodGetAsFrozenCreates a frozen copy of the Freezable, using base (non-animated) property values. Because the copy is frozen, any frozen sub-objects are copied by reference. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Public methodGetCurrentValueAsFrozenCreates a frozen copy of the Freezable using current property values. Because the copy is frozen, any frozen sub-objects are copied by reference. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Public methodGetHashCodeGets a hash code for this DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodGetLocalValueEnumeratorCreates a specialized enumerator for determining which dependency properties have locally set values on this DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetValueReturns the current effective value of a dependency property on this instance of a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodInvalidatePropertyRe-evaluates the effective value for the specified dependency property (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodReadLocalValueReturns the local value of a dependency property, if it exists. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSetCurrentValueSets the value of a dependency property without changing its value source. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSetValue(DependencyProperty, Object)Sets the local value of a dependency property, specified by its dependency property identifier. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSetValue(DependencyPropertyKey, Object)Sets the local value of a read-only dependency property, specified by the DependencyPropertyKey identifier of the dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodShouldSerializePropertyReturns a value that indicates whether serialization processes should serialize the value for the provided dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodToString()Creates a string representation of this GeneralTransform. (Inherited from GeneralTransform.)
Public methodToString(IFormatProvider)Creates a string representation of this instance, based on the passed IFormatProvider parameter. (Inherited from GeneralTransform.)
Public methodTransformTransforms the specified point and returns the result. (Inherited from GeneralTransform.)
Public methodTransformBoundsTransforms the specified bounding box and returns an axis-aligned bounding box that is exactly large enough to contain it. (Inherited from Transform.)
Public methodTryTransformAttempts to transform the specified point and returns a value that indicates whether the transformation was successful. (Inherited from Transform.)
Public methodVerifyAccessEnforces that the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject. (Inherited from DispatcherObject.)

TranslateTransform defines an axis-aligned translation along the x- and y- axes. The following illustration shows the transformation matrix for a translation by offset (dx, dy).

Freezable Features: Because it inherits from the Freezable class, the TranslateTransform class provides several special features: TranslateTransform objects can be declared as resources, shared among multiple objects, made read-only to improve performance, cloned, and made thread-safe. For more information about the different features provided by Freezable objects, see Freezable Objects Overview.

This example shows how to translate (move) an element by using a TranslateTransform.

The TranslateTransform class is especially useful for moving elements inside panels that do not support absolute positioning. For example, by applying a TranslateTransform to the RenderTransform property of an element, you can move an element within a StackPanel or DockPanel.

Use the X property of the TranslateTransform to specify the amount, in pixels, to move the element along the x-axis. Use the Y property to specify the amount, in pixels, to move the element along the y-axis. Finally, apply the TranslateTransform to the RenderTransform property of the element.

The following example uses a TranslateTransform to move an element 50 pixels to the right and 50 pixels down.

<Rectangle Height="50" Width="50" 
  Fill="#CCCCCCFF" Stroke="Blue" StrokeThickness="2"
  Canvas.Left="100" Canvas.Top="100">
  <Rectangle.RenderTransform>
    <TranslateTransform X="50" Y="50" />
  </Rectangle.RenderTransform>
</Rectangle>
