DrawingGroup.Transform Property

Gets or sets the Transform that is applied to this DrawingGroup.

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

'Declaration
Public Property Transform As Transform

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.Transform
The transformation to apply to this DrawingGroup. The default is Nothing.

Identifier field

TransformProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

To apply multiple transforms to a single DrawingGroup, use a TransformGroup.

DrawingGroup operations are applied in the following order:

  1. OpacityMask

  2. Opacity

  3. BitmapEffect

  4. ClipGeometry

  5. GuidelineSet

  6. Transform

This example shows how to apply a Transform to a Drawing. To transform a Drawing object, you add it to a DrawingGroup and set the Transform property of the DrawingGroup object.

The DrawingGroup class is the only type of Drawing object that supports transforms. To apply multiple transforms to a single DrawingGroup, use a TransformGroup.

The following example uses a DrawingGroup to combine several GeometryDrawing objects and then transforms them by using a RotateTransform.

The illustration shows the DrawingGroup before and after the RotateTransform is applied.
