glScalef function
Applies to: desktop apps only
The glScaled and glScalef functions multiply the current matrix by a general scaling matrix.
Syntax
void WINAPI glScalef( GLfloat x, GLfloat y, GLfloat z );
Parameters
 x

Scale factors along the x axis.
 y

Scale factors along the y axis.
 z

Scale factors along the z axis.
Return value
This function does not return a value.
Error codes
The following error code can be retrieved by the glGetError function.
Name  Meaning 


The function was called between a call to glBegin and the corresponding call to glEnd. 
Remarks
The glScalef function produces a general scaling along the x, y, and z axes. The three arguments indicate the desired scale factors along each of the three axes. The resulting matrix appears in the following image.
The current matrix (see glMatrixMode) is multiplied by this scale matrix, with the product replacing the current matrix. That is, if M is the current matrix and S is the scale matrix, then M is replaced with M • S.
If the matrix mode is either GL_MODELVIEW or GL_PROJECTION, all objects drawn after glScalef is called are scaled. Use glPushMatrix and glPopMatrix to save and restore the unscaled coordinate system.
If scale factors other than 1.0 are applied to the modelview matrix and lighting is enabled, automatic normalization of normals should probably also be enabled (glEnable and glDisable with argument GL_NORMALIZE).
The following functions retrieve information related to glScalef:
glGet with argument GL_MATRIX_MODE
glGet with argument GL_MODELVIEW_MATRIX
glGet with argument GL_PROJECTION_MATRIX
glGet with argument GL_TEXTURE_MATRIX
