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

public double CenterX { get; set; }
<SkewTransform CenterX="double"/>

Property Value

Type: System.Double
The x-coordinate of the transform center. The default is 0.

Dependency property identifier field: CenterXProperty

To skew an object in place, set the CenterX and CenterY properties to the object's center point.

The local origin point 0,0 for an object can be offset on a Canvas using Canvas.Left and Canvas.Top, but this does not count as a transform; the object retains its own local origin in this case for transformation purposes.

The following illustration shows three examples of a SkewTransform applied to a Rectangle.
