ScaleTransform.ScaleX Property


Gets or sets the x-axis scale factor.

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

public double ScaleX { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Double

The scale factor along the x-axis. The default is 1.

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.
