Get the size (after it has been “streched”) of an item in a ViewBox

Consider the following:

Let's say the Window is 1024x768 and the ViewBox fills the entire window, this means the TextBox is really large on the screen.

I want to get the size of the TextBox as it is currently on the screen. If I get DesiredSize or ActualSize or even RenderedSize I always get 100.

Any suggestions?

Update: I could probably get the ActualWidth of the ViewBox and divide it by the ActualWidth of it's child which would give me the current scale factor and expose that as a property somehow but I'm not sure that's the best way to do it.


This is how you get the ScaleTransform the ViewBox exerts on its children:

var child = VisualTreeHelper.GetChild(viewBox, 0) as ContainerVisual;
var scale = child.Transform as ScaleTransform;

Here viewBox is the ViewBox that textbox sits in. Then you can just multiply scale.ScaleX * textBox.ActualWidth and you get the size in Screen coordinates

But it gets even easier! To get that textbox's size directly in Screen Coordinates you do:

textbox.PointToScreen(new Point(textbox.ActualWidth,textbox.ActualHeight)) - textbox.PointToScreen(new Point(0,0))
