CenterX Property (SkewTransform)

Gets or sets the x-coordinate of the transform center.

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

Property Value


The x-coordinate of the transform center.

This property is read/write. The default value is 0.


To skew an object in place, set the CenterX and CenterY properties to the object's center point.

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.

The following illustration shows three examples of a SkewTransform applied to a Rectangle.
