Finding the center point of an Image within a ContentControl

Hi Experts,

I have developed a custom class that inherits from ContentControl in WPF. WIthin this content control is a single Image.

I have then attached events to the class to handle (mouse wheel) zooming and (mouse click and drag) panning based on the mouse position.

The panning uses a TranslateTransform which the zooming also uses as well as a ScaleTransform.  I have created a TransformGroup and set the RenderTransform property of the Image within the ContentControl to the TransformGroup

I now wish to zoom and rotate (using RotateTransform) the image using buttons but I am having trouble getting the centerX and centerY right so the image zooms and rotates from the center point of the image.

Thanks in advance

Tom

Just to update, I don't need to get the center point of the image when i zoom with the mouse wheel as the image is also panned to the position of the mouse. I need to either create a virtual point at the center of the image or use the CenterX and CenterY  properties of the scale transform where CenterX and CenterY intersect at the center of the image

Silverlight uses Dependency Properties to keep track of properties that can come from multiple sources, such as width and height. Access the dependency properties to get the height and width of the control like this:

YourControl.GetValue(WidthProperty);
YourControl.GetValue(HeightProperty);

Hi Peter,
Thanks for the information. How could I use the GetValue function of the UIElement to work out the center point of an image that has potentially been scaled and moved within a ContentControl?
Thanks
Tom

double CHeight = (double)YourControl.GetValue(HeightProperty);
double CWidth = (double)YourControl.GetValue(WidthProperty);
Point CCentre = new Point();
CCentre.X = CWidth / 2;
CCentre.Y = CHeight / 2;
