Examples

The following example shows how to use the Scale method to multiply the width and height of a rectangle by the specified amount.

private Size scaleExample()
{
// Initialize new rectangle.
Rect myRectangle = new Rect();

// The Location property specifies the coordinates of the upper left-hand
// corner of the rectangle.
myRectangle.Location = new Point(10, 5);

// Set the Size property of the rectangle with a width of 200
// and a height of 50.
myRectangle.Size = new Size(200, 50);

// The Scale method multiplies the size of the rectangle by the specified amount.
// myRectangle size changed from (200,50) to (4000,1500).
myRectangle.Scale(20, 30);

// Returns a size of 4000,1500.
return myRectangle.Size;
