Transform Property

Device.Transform Property

Gets a matrix that describes a transformation state.

Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsMobile.DirectX.Direct3D
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsMobile.DirectX (in microsoft.windowsmobile.directx.dll)

public Transforms Transform { get; }
/** @property */
public Transforms get_Transform ()

public function get Transform () : Transforms

Not applicable.

Property Value

A Transforms structure that describes the returned transformation state.

Exception typeCondition


The method call is invalid. For example, a parameter might contain an invalid value.

The following code demonstrates how to use the Transform property.

// This code example is from the Direct3D Mobile Matrices Sample
// in the .NET Compact Framework Samples in the SDK.
private void SetupMatrices()
    // For the world matrix, rotate the object about the y-axis.

    // Set up the rotation matrix to generate one full rotation (2*PI radians)
    // every 1000 ms. To avoid the loss of precision inherent in very high
    // floating-point numbers, the system time is modulated by the rotation
    // period before conversion to a radian angle.
    int iTime = Environment.TickCount % 1000;
    float fAngle = iTime * (2.0f * (float)Math.PI) / 1000.0f;
    device.Transform.World = Matrix.RotationY(fAngle);
    // Set up the view matrix. A view matrix can be defined given an eye point,
    // a point to look at, and a direction indicating which way is up. Here, you set
    // the eye five units back along the z-axis and up three units, look at the
    // origin, and define "up" to be in the y-direction.
    device.Transform.View = Matrix.LookAtLH(new Vector3(0.0f, 3.0f, -5.0f), new Vector3(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f), new Vector3(0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f));
    // For the projection matrix, set up a perspective transform (which
    // transforms geometry from 3-D view space to 2-D viewport space, with
    // a perspective divide making objects smaller in the distance). To build
    // a perspective transform, you need the field of view (1/4 PI is common),
    // the aspect ratio, and the near and far clipping planes (which define
    // the distances at which geometry should no longer be rendered).
    device.Transform.Projection = Matrix.PerspectiveFovLH((float)Math.PI / 4, 1.0f, 1.0f, 100.0f);
