In Silverlight "ScaleTransform" is used to stretch or shrink an element horizontally or vertically. It has mainly two properties ScaleX and ScaleY. By default ScaleX and ScaleY values are 1. We either can increase 1 or decrease 1 for both of it's properties.
The ScaleX property specifies the amount to stretch or shrink element along X-axis.
The ScaleY property specifies the amount to stretch or shrink element along Y-axis.
In the above screenshot, I have used three Text Blocks to clarify the basics of scaling.

HAVE A HAPPY CODING!!
