X Property (TranslateTransform)

Gets or sets the distance to translate along the x-axis.

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

Property Value


The distance to translate (move) an object along the x-axis.

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


Negative values move an object to the left; positive values move an object to the right.

The local 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 0,0 in this case for transform purposes. For details on this concept, see Object Layout in Silverlight.
