public static method ScaleAroundPivot(scale: Vector2, pivotPoint: Vector2): void;
public static void ScaleAroundPivot(Vector2 scale, Vector2 pivotPoint);


Helper function to scale the GUI around a point.

Modifies GUI.matrix to rotate all GUI elements angle degrees around pivotPoint.

See Also: GUI.matrix, RotateAroundPivot.

    // Scale a button by 1.5 times each time is pressed.

private var scale : Vector2 = Vector2(1,1); private var pivotPoint : Vector2;

function OnGUI () { pivotPoint = Vector2(Screen.width/2,Screen.height/2); GUIUtility.ScaleAroundPivot (scale, pivotPoint); if(GUI.Button(Rect(Screen.width/2-25, Screen.height/2-25, 50, 50),"Big!")){ scale += Vector2(0.5,0.5); } }
