Silverlight 4 Rough Notes: CompositeTransform

Note – these posts are put together after a short time with Silverlight 4 as a way of providing pointers to some of the new features that Silverlight 4 has to offer. I’m posting these from the PDC as Silverlight 4 is announced for the first time so please bear that in mind when working through these posts.

and the transformations run scale->skew->rotate->translate – really this just saves you having to use separate ScaleTransform, SkewTransform, RotateTransform and TranslateTransform so saves on the length of XAML.
