I'm using CoverFlow for silverlight 3, last build of 2009...

I'm trying to scale my items in the CF.
My items are rendering with a UserControl as template.
This usercontrol is sized with width and height to 255px
inside this control there is a textblock displaying binded text.

Now I would like to scale entire control representing my item so Image will be streched and textblock (and font) too.
But when I use a scalerendertransform into this UserControl it seems that CF don't matter about this scale and space between items is not correct, ie. the 'layouting' seems to use original size of my items.

Is there another approach ?

Thanks for help !

Hi Alexandre,

 As the transform is called RenderTransform, it affects only the rendering, but not the layout. To make a transformation that affects the layout as well you might use the LayoutTransformControl in the Telerik.Windows.Controls.Primitives namespace of the Telerik.Windows.Controls assembly. It applies render transform, but affects the layout as well.

Nevertheless I would recommend you just to make the user control bigger instead of transforming it, because transformations might make the content blurry.

Hope this information is helpful.

Kind regards,
