Expression Blend : Transformations – WPF Tutorial #9
This transformation topic only covers the transformation in the view of Expression Blend. There are following simple transformation which you can get in any image manipulation software.
Now, how these transformation applies to the object is depend upon which category of transform you are using. Following is the transformation category:
- RenderTransform The transformation is applied after the layout pass is complete. Using the Selection tool to transform an object on the artboard modifies the RenderTransform properties.
Using the RenderTransform properties is the ideal way to perform transformations on objects because of better application performance.
- LayoutTransform The transformation is applied in memory during layout, before the application is rendered on screen. Use the LayoutTransform properties when you need a parent element to adjust to the transformation applied to a child element.
Following example is taken for Adam Nathan’s book:
This clears the understanding of RenderTransform and LayoutTransform easily. Thanks to Nathan for this.
Last point is cliptobounds property of the control. If that property is true, the control which you transform is clipped into the parents object.
