Gets or sets transform information that affects the rendering position of this element. This is a dependency property.
Assembly: PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
Metadata properties set to true
A render transform does not regenerate layout size or render size information. Render transforms are typically intended for animating or applying a temporary effect to an element. For example, the element might zoom when focused or moused over, or might jitter on load to draw the eye to that part of the user interface (UI).
This example shows how to use a ScaleTransform to flip a UIElement horizontally or vertically. In this example, a Button control (a type of UIElement) is flipped by applying a ScaleTransform to its property.
The following illustration shows the button to flip.
The following shows the code that creates the button.
As you can see from the previous illustration, the button was flipped, but it was also moved. That's because the button was flipped from its top left corner. To flip the button in place, you want to apply the ScaleTransform to its center, not its corner. An easy way to apply the ScaleTransform to the buttons center is to set the button's RenderTransformOrigin property to 0.5, 0.5.
