Gets or sets the x-axis scale factor.

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

Type: Double

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 by using the Canvas.Left and Canvas.Top properties, but this does not count as a transform because the object retains its own local origin for transformation purposes.

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.
