Gets or sets the y-coordinate of this Point.

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

public int Y { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32

The y-coordinate of this Point.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Equality operator and how to construct a Point from a Size or two integers. It also demonstrates how to use the X and Y properties. This example is designed to be used with Windows Forms. Paste the code into a form that contains a button named Button1, and associate the Button1_Click method with the button's Click event.

private void Button1_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)

    // Construct a new Point with integers.
    Point Point1 = new Point(100, 100);

    // Create a Graphics object.
    Graphics formGraphics = this.CreateGraphics();

    // Construct another Point, this time using a Size.
    Point Point2 = new Point(new Size(100, 100));

    // Call the equality operator to see if the points are equal,  
    // and if so print out their x and y values.
    if (Point1 == Point2)
        formGraphics.DrawString(String.Format("Point1.X: " +
            "{0},Point2.X: {1}, Point1.Y: {2}, Point2.Y {3}",
            new object[]{Point1.X, Point2.X, Point1.Y, Point2.Y}),
            this.Font, Brushes.Black, new PointF(10, 70));
