Scales the hosted Windows Forms control, and tracks the scale factor.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms.Integration
Assembly:  WindowsFormsIntegration (in WindowsFormsIntegration.dll)

abstract ScaleChild : 
        newScale:Vector -> Vector
override ScaleChild : 
        newScale:Vector -> Vector


Type: System.Windows.Vector

The new scale factor.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.Vector

A Vector which represents the scale factor applied to the hosted Windows Forms control.

Windows Forms controls do not support scaling in the same way as WPF elements. For example, scaling a Windows Forms control from a factor of 1 to a factor of 0.5 and back to a factor of 1 does not, in general, recover the original size of the control. For more information, see Layout Considerations for the WindowsFormsHost Element.

Override the ScaleChild method to provide custom scaling behavior for the hosted Windows Forms control.
