ScaleMode Property


Specifies the unit of measure for the control.

public virtual ScaleMode ScaleMode { get; set; } 
Public Overridable Property ScaleMode As ScaleMode 
virtual property ScaleMode ScaleMode { 
   ScaleMode get(); 
   void set (    ScaleMode ); 

Property Value

A ScaleMode value representing the unit of measure.


The value should be one of the ScaleMode enumeration values. Assignment can raise an error exception. For more information, refer to the Error Codes.
