Matrix.Multiply Operator

Multiplies a Matrix structure by another Matrix structure.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)

public static Matrix operator *(
	Matrix trans1,
	Matrix trans2
)

Parameters

trans1
Type: System.Windows.Media.Matrix
The first Matrix structure to multiply.
trans2
Type: System.Windows.Media.Matrix
The second Matrix structure to multiply.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.Matrix
The result of multiplying trans1 by trans2.

Matrix multiplication is not commutative. Multiplying trans1 by trans2 is not the same as multiplying trans2 by trans1.

The following example shows how to multiply two Matrix structures.


private void multiplicationExample()
{

    Matrix matrix1 = new Matrix(5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30);
    Matrix matrix2 = new Matrix(2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12);

    // matrixResult is equal to (70,100,150,220,240,352) 
    Matrix matrixResult = Matrix.Multiply(matrix1, matrix2);

    // matrixResult2 is also
    // equal to (70,100,150,220,240,352) 
    Matrix matrixResult2 = matrix1 * matrix2;


}
