myViewbox.StretchDirection = StretchDirection.Both
myViewbox.Stretch = Stretch.Fill
myViewbox.MaxWidth = 400
myViewbox.MaxHeight = 400

// Create a Viewbox and add it to the Canvas
myViewbox = new Viewbox();
myViewbox.StretchDirection = StretchDirection.Both;
myViewbox.Stretch = Stretch.Fill;
myViewbox.MaxWidth = 400;
myViewbox.MaxHeight = 400;
