Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.swt.graphics
Class Transform

java.lang.Object
  extended by 

org.eclipse.swt.graphics.Resource
      extended by 
org.eclipse.swt.graphics.Transform

public class Transform
extends Resource

Instances of this class represent transformation matrices for points expressed as (x, y) pairs of floating point numbers.

Application code must explicitly invoke the Transform.dispose() method to release the operating system resources managed by each instance when those instances are no longer required.

This class requires the operating system's advanced graphics subsystem which may not be available on some platforms.

Since:
3.1
