XMPlaneFromPointNormal method

Computes the equation of a plane constructed from a point in the plane and a normal vector.

Syntax


XMVECTOR XMPlaneFromPointNormal(
  [in]  XMVECTOR Point,
  [in]  XMVECTOR Normal
);

Parameters

Point [in]

3D vector describing a point in the plane.

Normal [in]

3D vector normal to the plane.

Return value

Returns a vector whose components are the coefficients of the plane (A, B, C, D) for the plane equation


XMVECTOR Result;

Result.x = Normal.x;
Result.y = Normal.y;
Result.z = Normal.z;
Result.w = -(Point.x * Normal.x + Point.y * Normal.y + Point.z * Normal.z);

return Result;

.
