Matrix class

Applies to: desktop apps only

A Matrix object represents a 3
×3 matrix that, in turn, represents an affine transformation. A Matrix object stores only six of the 9 numbers in a 3
×3 matrix because all 3
×3 matrices that represent affine transformations have the same third column (0, 0, 1).

Members

The Matrix class inherits from GdiplusBase. Matrix also has these types of members:

The Matrix::GetElements method gets the elements of this matrix. The elements are placed in an array in the order m11, m12, m21, m22, m31, m32, where mij denotes the element in row i, column j.

The Matrix::TransformPoints method multiplies each point in an array by this matrix. Each point is treated as a row matrix. The multiplication is performed with the row matrix on the left and this matrix on the right.

The Matrix::TransformPoints method multiplies each point in an array by this matrix. Each point is treated as a row matrix. The multiplication is performed with the row matrix on the left and this matrix on the right.

The Matrix::TransformVectors method multiplies each vector in an array by this matrix. The translation elements of this matrix (third row) are ignored. Each vector is treated as a row matrix. The multiplication is performed with the row matrix on the left and this matrix on the right.
