Getting Started with WinUI LayoutTransformControl

This topic demonstrates how to use the RadLayoutTransformControl for WinUI.

Assembly References

In order to use the RadLayoutTransformControl suite in your projects, you have to add references to the following assembly:

  • Telerik.WinUI.Controls.dll

Defining a RadLayoutTransformControl

Here is how RadLayoutTransformControl is declared in XAML:

You can access the RadLayoutTransformControl control through an alias pointing to the Telerik.UI.Xaml.Controls.Input namespace: xmlns:telerikPrimitives="using:Telerik.UI.Xaml.Controls.Primitives"

Example 1: Adding a RadLayoutTransformControl in XAML

<telerikPrimitives:RadLayoutTransformControl /> 

Applying Transformations

The RadLayoutTransformControl exposes a LayoutTransform which you can use to apply transformations to the content of the control. It is of type Microsoft.UI.Xaml.Media.Transform. Here's a list of possible transformations:

  • RotateTransform
  • ScaleTransform
  • SkewTransform
  • MatrixTransform
  • TransformGroup

Example 2: Applying a TransformGroup

<telerik:RadLayoutTransformControl x:Name="LayoutTransformControl"> 
            <RotateTransform Angle="45" /> 
            <ScaleTransform ScaleX="2" ScaleY="2" /> 
            <SkewTransform AngleX="10" AngleY="10" /> 
    <Border Background="LightBlue" Width="100" Height="100"> 
        <TextBlock Text="Content" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center" />

You can also set the transformations in code, as shown in Example 3:

Example 3: Applying a MatrixTransform

this.LayoutTransformControl.LayoutTransform = new MatrixTransform()  
    Matrix = new Matrix()  
        M11 = 0.3, 
        M12 = 1,  
        M21 = 2,  
        M22 = 0,  
        OffsetX = 10,  
        OffsetY = 50
