ScaleTransform.ScaleX Property

 property double ScaleX { double get(); void set(double value); };
public double ScaleX { get; set; }
member this.ScaleX : double with get, set
Public Property ScaleX As Double

Property Value


The scale factor along the x-axis. The default is 1.


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.
