'Declaration
Public Class ManipulationDelta

The ManipulationDelta type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodManipulationDeltaInitializes a new instance of the ManipulationDelta class.
Top

  NameDescription
Public propertyExpansionGets or sets the amount the manipulation has resized in device-independent units (1/96th inch per unit).
Public propertyRotationGets or sets the rotation of the manipulation in degrees.
Public propertyScaleGets or sets the amount the manipulation has resized as a multiplier.
Public propertyTranslationGets or sets the linear motion of the manipulation.

  NameDescription
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The ManipulationDelta class contains information about the changes in the position of a manipulation. Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) interprets the changes as a Translation, Expansion, or Rotation. When the ManipulationDelta event occurs on a UIElement, use the properties on a ManipulationDelta object to transform the object that should be manipulated. The ManipulationDeltaEventArgs class provides two properties of type ManipulationDelta: DeltaManipulation and CumulativeManipulation.

For more information about manipulations, see the Input Overview. For an example of an application that responds to manipulations, see Walkthrough: Creating Your First Touch Application.

The following example shows an event handler for the ManipulationDelta event. The example applies the Translation, Scale, and Rotation properties to move, resize, and rotate a Rectangle. This example is part of a larger example in Walkthrough: Creating Your First Touch Application.


Private Sub Window_ManipulationDelta(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ManipulationDeltaEventArgs)

    ' Get the Rectangle and its RenderTransform matrix.
    Dim rectToMove As Rectangle = e.OriginalSource
    Dim rectTransform As MatrixTransform = rectToMove.RenderTransform
    Dim rectsMatrix As Matrix = rectTransform.Matrix


    ' Rotate the shape
    rectsMatrix.RotateAt(e.DeltaManipulation.Rotation,
                         e.ManipulationOrigin.X,
                         e.ManipulationOrigin.Y)

    ' Resize the Rectangle. Keep it square 
    ' so use only the X value of Scale.
    rectsMatrix.ScaleAt(e.DeltaManipulation.Scale.X,
                        e.DeltaManipulation.Scale.X,
                        e.ManipulationOrigin.X,
                        e.ManipulationOrigin.Y)

    'move the center
    rectsMatrix.Translate(e.DeltaManipulation.Translation.X,
                          e.DeltaManipulation.Translation.Y)

    ' Apply the changes to the Rectangle.
    rectTransform = New MatrixTransform(rectsMatrix)
    rectToMove.RenderTransform = rectTransform

    Dim container As FrameworkElement = e.ManipulationContainer
    Dim containingRect As New Rect(container.RenderSize)

    Dim shapeBounds As Rect = rectTransform.TransformBounds(
                                New Rect(rectToMove.RenderSize))

    ' Check if the rectangle is completely in the window.
    ' If it is not and intertia is occuring, stop the manipulation.
    If e.IsInertial AndAlso Not containingRect.Contains(shapeBounds) Then
        e.Complete()
    End If

    e.Handled = True
End Sub
