Flex - Scale3D Effect


Advertisements


Introduction

The Scale3D class scales a target object in three dimensions around the transform center. A scale of 2.0 means the object is magnified by a factor of 2, and a scale of 0.5 means the object is reduced by a factor of 2.

Class Declaration

Following is the declaration for spark.effects.Scale3D class −

public class Scale3D
   extends AnimateTransform3D

Flex Scale3D Effect Example

Let us follow the following steps to check usage of Scale3D Effect in a Flex application by creating a test application −

Step Description
1 Create a project with a name HelloWorld under a package com.tutorialspoint.client as explained in the Flex - Create Application chapter.
2 Modify HelloWorld.mxml as explained below. Keep rest of the files unchanged.
3 Compile and run the application to make sure business logic is working as per the requirements.

Following is the content of the modified mxml file src/com.tutorialspoint/HelloWorld.mxml.

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>

               </s:HGroup>
                  
               <s:HGroup verticalAlign = "middle">
                  <s:Label text = "Scale By Y:" width = "70" />

                  <s:TextInput id = "scalingZ" text = "1.4" width = "50" />
               </s:HGroup>
                  
               <s:Button label = "Apply Properties" click = "applyScaleProperties()" />
            </s:VGroup>

            <s:Image id = "imageFlex"
               source = "http://www.tutorialspoint.com/images/flex-mini.png" />
         </s:Panel>
      </s:VGroup>
   </s:BorderContainer>
</s:Application>

Once you are ready with all the changes done, let us compile and run the application in normal mode as we did in Flex - Create Application chapter. If everything is fine with your application, it will produce the following result: [ Try it online ]
