This example uses a TranslateTransform to offset text. In this example, a slightly offset copy of text below the primary text creates a shadow effect.


    <!-- Offset the text using a TranslateTransform. -->
    <TextBlock FontFamily="Verdana"
               Text="Translated Text">
            <TranslateTransform X="2" Y="2" />

    <TextBlock FontFamily="Verdana"
               Text="Translated Text"/>

<Canvas Width="200" Height="200">
    <Rectangle PointerPressed="Rectangle_PointerPressed" 
               Width="50" Height="50" 
            <!-- If you give the transform a name 
                 you can access it easily from code. -->
            <TranslateTransform x:Name="myTranslateTransform" />
private void Rectangle_PointerPressed(object sender, Windows.UI.Xaml.Input.PointerRoutedEventArgs e)
    // Increase the X and Y properties.
    myTranslateTransform.X = myTranslateTransform.X + 15;
    myTranslateTransform.Y = myTranslateTransform.Y + 15;


TranslateTransform() TranslateTransform() TranslateTransform() TranslateTransform()

Initializes a new instance of the TranslateTransform class.


Dispatcher Dispatcher Dispatcher Dispatcher

Gets the CoreDispatcher that this object is associated with. The CoreDispatcher represents a facility that can access the DependencyObject on the UI thread even if the code is initiated by a non-UI thread.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
Inverse Inverse Inverse Inverse

Gets the inverse transformation of this GeneralTransform, if possible.

(Inherited from GeneralTransform)
InverseCore InverseCore InverseCore InverseCore

Implements the behavior for return value of Inverse in a derived or custom GeneralTransform.

(Inherited from GeneralTransform)

Gets or sets the distance to translate along the x-axis.

XProperty XProperty XProperty XProperty

Identifies the X dependency property.


Gets or sets the distance to translate (move) an object along the y-axis.

YProperty YProperty YProperty YProperty

Identifies the Y dependency property.


ClearValue(DependencyProperty) ClearValue(DependencyProperty) ClearValue(DependencyProperty) ClearValue(DependencyProperty)

Clears the local value of a dependency property.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
GetAnimationBaseValue(DependencyProperty) GetAnimationBaseValue(DependencyProperty) GetAnimationBaseValue(DependencyProperty) GetAnimationBaseValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns any base value established for a dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
GetValue(DependencyProperty) GetValue(DependencyProperty) GetValue(DependencyProperty) GetValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty) ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty) ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty) ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
RegisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,DependencyPropertyChangedCallback) RegisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,DependencyPropertyChangedCallback) RegisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,DependencyPropertyChangedCallback) RegisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,DependencyPropertyChangedCallback)

Registers a notification function for listening to changes to a specific DependencyProperty on this DependencyObject instance.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
SetValue(DependencyProperty,Object) SetValue(DependencyProperty,Object) SetValue(DependencyProperty,Object) SetValue(DependencyProperty,Object)

Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
TransformBounds(Rect) TransformBounds(Rect) TransformBounds(Rect) TransformBounds(Rect)

Transforms the specified bounding box and returns an axis-aligned bounding box that is exactly large enough to contain it.

(Inherited from GeneralTransform)
TransformBoundsCore(Rect) TransformBoundsCore(Rect) TransformBoundsCore(Rect) TransformBoundsCore(Rect)

Provides the means to override the TransformBounds behavior in a derived transform class.

(Inherited from GeneralTransform)
TransformPoint(Point) TransformPoint(Point) TransformPoint(Point) TransformPoint(Point)

Uses this transformation object's logic to transform the specified point, and returns the result.

(Inherited from GeneralTransform)
UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,Int64) UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,Int64) UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,Int64) UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,Int64)

Cancels a change notification that was previously registered by calling RegisterPropertyChangedCallback.
