XAML Values

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.Projection
The perspective projection to apply when rendering this UIElement. The default is nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) (no perspective applied).


Dependency property identifier field: ProjectionProperty

Projection is the base class type that this property uses, but Projection does not implement a practical behavior. The existing practical Silverlight class that can be used for a projection effect is PlaneProjection.


The following example sets the Projection property to a PlaneProjection in order to rotate a StackPanel as if it is in 3-D space.

    <StackPanel Margin="35" Background="Gray">
            <PlaneProjection RotationX="-35" RotationY="-35" RotationZ="15"  />
        <TextBlock Margin="10">Type Something Below</TextBlock>
        <TextBox Margin="10"></TextBox>
        <Button Margin="10" Content="Click" Width="100" />
