Gets or sets the x-axis scale factor.
<object ScaleX="Double" .../>
value = object.scaleX
object.scaleX = value
The scale factor along the x-axis.
This property is read/write. The default value is 1.
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. For details on this concept, see Object Layout in Silverlight.
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.
