Use to centerRect property to specifies a region of pixels that should be stretched when the image is stretched.

In particular, the centerRect is stretched in both x and y directions, the corners outside of the centerRect are not stretched and the sides are stretched horizontally or vertically only depending on orientation.

  • Value: The centerRect property return a comma delimited list of integersrepresenting the top, left, right and bottom of the centerRect. Bydefault, the centerRect property of an image is empty.
