RenderTransform. Controls in WPF support graphical transformations. We can scale, skew, rotate and translate controls. We use the RenderTransform element. For a Button, we specify a Button.RenderTransform and a TransformGroup.
Example. To begin, please drag a Button control to the WPF window. Now, attempt to rotate the Button in Visual Studio: click on a corner and drag it in the direction you want to rotate. Visual Studio will insert a Button.RenderTransform element.
ScaleTransform: This is the first element within the TransformGroup element. It scales (makes bigger or smaller) the X and Y dimensions.
SkewTransform: Skewing an element causes it to lose its original shape. It distorts the element. We set AngleX to 30.
RotateTransform: This rotates the element. We specify a 35-degree rotation of the Button control.
TranslateTransform: This changes the location of the control. We move it 50 pixels to the right (X) and 80 pixels downward (Y).
The screenshot at the top shows the output of this XAML. The button, salmon-colored with white text, is rotated and skewed and scaled. This makes it almost unusable in a real program.
Summary. Any WPF control can be transformed in this way. But in many programs, these transformations are not helpful. No one wants to read a DataGrid that is rotated or skewed. It is best to be careful and apply transformations only as needed.DataGrid
