2D-Scaling Effect

Overview

The 2D Scaling effect feature allows users to resize widgets and their layers, enabling adjustments to their dimensions along the x and y. The x and y axes correspond to the width and height of the image, respectively.

Types of Scaling

Upscaling: When the scaling factor is greater than 1000, the widget size is increased. For example, a scaling factor of 2000 results in the widget being twice its original size.

Note: A scaling factor of 1000 represents 100% of the widget’s original size.

Downscaling: When the scaling factor is less than 1000, the widget size is reduced. For instance, a scaling factor of 500 shrinks the widget to half its original size.

This effect is achieved by the following steps:

  • Drag and drop the desired widget into the design view.

  • In the “Effects” tab, apply a scaling effect to the desired widget. Note that in Flint, only the image layer of the widget can be scaled.

  • Input the scaling factor to x and y. To change the scale at runtime, map data variables to the required axis. In simulation, set the scaling factor to the respective axis.

Points to be considered:

  • The Scaling effect is specifically intended for image layers and might only impact the image layer even if applied to widget.

  • Data storage should be set to INTU32.

  • Neither invalid nor empty data is permissible.
