Point Structure

Represents an x- and y-coordinate pair in two-dimensional space.

Namespace: System.Windows
Assembly: WindowsBase (in windowsbase.dll)
XML Namespace:  http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation

[SerializableAttribute] 
[TypeConverterAttribute(typeof(PointConverter))] 
public struct Point : IFormattable
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
/** @attribute TypeConverterAttribute(System.Windows.PointConverter) */ 
public final class Point extends ValueType implements IFormattable
<object property="x,y"/>
 x   System.Double  The x-coordinate of this Point.  y   System.Double  The y-coordinate of this Point. 

The following example shows how to check if two Point structures are not equal. It also illustrates how to assign values to a Point structure when the structure is being declared and after the structure has been declared.

// Checks if two Points are equal using the overloaded inequality operator.
private Boolean pointInequalityExample()
{
    // Checks if two Points are not equal using the overloaded inequality operator.

    // Declaring point1 and initializing x,y values
    Point point1 = new Point(10, 5);

    // Declaring point2 without initializing x,y values
    Point point2 = new Point();

    // Boolean to hold the result of the comparison
    Boolean areNotEqual;

    // assigning values to point2
    point2.X = 15;
    point2.Y = 40;

    // Compare Point structures for equality.
    // areNotEqual is True
    areNotEqual = (point1 != point2);

    return areNotEqual;

}
