Rotating Text in WPF

To show the rotating text in WPF we take a TextBlock Control on the form and select the TextBlock control and press F4 to property window and add some text to the control which will show as the rotating text.

XAML code

<Window x:Class="MainWindow"

    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"

    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"

    Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">

    <Canvas>

        <TextBlock Name="MyRotatingText" Margin="20" Width="640" Height="100" FontSize="48" FontWeight="Bold" Foreground="Tomato" Canvas.Left="-21" Canvas.Top="0">

        This is a TextBlock control

        <TextBlock.RenderTransform>

          <RotateTransform x:Name="MyRotateTransform" Angle="0" CenterX="230" CenterY="25"/>

        </TextBlock.RenderTransform>

        <TextBlock.Triggers>

          <EventTrigger RoutedEvent="TextBlock.Loaded">

            <BeginStoryboard>

              <Storyboard>

                <DoubleAnimation

                  Storyboard.TargetName="MyRotateTransform"

                  Storyboard.TargetProperty="(RotateTransform.Angle)"

                  From="0.0" To="360" Duration="0:0:10"

                  RepeatBehavior="Forever" />

              </Storyboard>

            </BeginStoryboard>

          </EventTrigger>

        </TextBlock.Triggers>

        </TextBlock>

</Canvas>

</Window>
