Point Structure

Represents an ordered pair of integer x- and y-coordinates that defines a point in a two-dimensional plane.

Namespace:  System.Drawing
Assembly:  System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)

public value class Point

The following code example creates points and sizes using several of the overloaded operators defined for these types. It also demonstrates how to use the SystemPens class.

This example is designed to be used with Windows Forms. Create a form that contains a Button named subtractButton. Paste the code into the form and call the CreatePointsAndSizes method from the form's Paint event-handling method, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

void CreatePointsAndSizes( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   // Create the starting point.
   Point startPoint = Point(subtractButton->Size);

   // Use the addition operator to get the end point.
   Point endPoint = startPoint + System::Drawing::Size( 140, 150 );

   // Draw a line between the points.
   e->Graphics->DrawLine( SystemPens::Highlight, startPoint, endPoint );

   // Convert the starting point to a size and compare it to the 
   // subtractButton size.  
   System::Drawing::Size buttonSize = (System::Drawing::Size)startPoint;
   if ( buttonSize == subtractButton->Size )
      e->Graphics->DrawString( "The sizes are equal.", gcnew System::Drawing::Font( this->Font,FontStyle::Italic ), Brushes::Indigo, 10.0F, 65.0F );

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
