Transforms

Silverlight provides a powerful set of transforms to apply to the visual object. The following is a full set of 2D transforms:

  • TranslateTransform: This shifts an object in a 2D plane.
  • ScaleTransform: This scales (or resizes) the object by the ScaleX factor along the X-axis and the ScaleY factor along the Y-axis.
  • SkewTransform: Skewing along the X-axis turns every vector orthogonal to the X-axis by the same angle defined by AngleX, and expands its length so that its Y coordinate stays the same. The AngleY parameter of the transform is in charge of skewing along the Y-axis.
  • RotateTransform: This rotates an object by the Angle parameter.
  • MatrixTransform: This is a generic transform that can represent any linear transformation and translation ...
