Property Value

Type Description

The scale factor to apply to a shape. Default is 1 (the shape is not scaled).


Use the ScaleX property to scale a shape horizontally relative to its original size (OriginalSize). Values between 0 and 1 decrease the shape width, and values greater than 1 increase the width.

If you assign a negative number to the ScaleX property, its absolute value is used.

        s.ScaleX = 0.8f;
        s.ScaleY = 0.8f;
        s.RotationAngle = 45;
