Stroke.Transform Method (Matrix, Boolean)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Performs a transformation based upon the specified Matrix object.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Ink
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public virtual void Transform(
	Matrix transformMatrix,
	bool applyToStylusTip


Type: System.Windows.Media.Matrix

The Matrix object defining the transformation.

Type: System.Boolean

true to apply the transformation to the tip of the stylus; otherwise, false.

The Matrix object represents a 3x3 matrix used for transformations in two-dimensional space. Each point of the Stroke object is transformed by the supplied Matrix. For example if the original Point.X value is 100, the original Point.Y value is 55, and the transformation Matrix.Scale(0.5, 0.5), the new Point.X value is 50 and the new Point.Y value is 27.5.

The following example demonstrates how to transform a Stroke object.

protected DrawingVisual DrawDCOnly(Stroke myStroke)
    // Create new Visual context to draw on
    DrawingVisual myVisual = new DrawingVisual();
    DrawingContext myContext = myVisual.RenderOpen();

    // myMatrix is scaled by:
    // myMatrix.Scale(0.5, 0.5)
    myStroke.Transform(myMatrix, false);

    // Draw the stroke on the Visual context using DrawingContext

    // Close the context

    return myVisual;
