Gets or sets the x-axis scale factor.

Namespace: System.Windows.Media
Assembly: System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: Not mapped to an xmlns.


Public Property ScaleX As Double
public double ScaleX { get; set; }
<ScaleTransform ScaleX="double"/>

Property Value

Type: System..::.Double
The scale factor along the x-axis. The default is 1.


Dependency property identifier field: ScaleXProperty

Values between 0 and 1 decrease the width of the scaled object; values greater than 1 increase the width of the scaled object. A value of 1 indicates that the object is not scaled in the x-direction.

Negative values flip the scaled object horizontally. Values between 0 and -1 flip the scale object and decrease its width. Values less than -1 flip the object and increase its width. A value of -1 flips the scaled object but does not change its horizontal size.

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.
