A handful of built-in 2D transform classes (derived from
Transform) enable you to change the size and position of elements independently from the previously discussed properties. Some also enable you to alter elements in more exotic ways, such as by rotating or skewing them.
UIElements have a
RenderTransform property that can be set to any
Transform in order to change its appearance after the layout process has finished (immediately before the element is rendered). They also have a handy
RenderTransformOrigin property that represents the starting point of the transform (the point that remains stationary). Figure 5.6 demonstrates the impact of setting
RenderTransformOrigin to five different (x,y) values when used with ...
