ScaleY Property

Gets or sets the y-axis scale factor.

<object ScaleY="Double" .../>
value = object.ScaleY
object.ScaleY = value

Property Value


The scale factor along the y-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 height of the scaled object; values greater than 1 increase the height of the scaled object. A value of 1 indicates that the object is not scaled in the y-direction.

Negative values flip the scaled object vertically. Values between 0 and -1 flip the scale object and decrease its height. Values less than -1 flip the object and increase its height. A value of -1 flips the scaled object but does not change its vertical size.
