Public Property Y As Integer

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 Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

    ' Construct a new Point with integers.
    Dim Point1 As New Point(100, 100)

    ' Create a Graphics object.
    Dim formGraphics As Graphics = Me.CreateGraphics()

    ' Construct another Point, this time using a Size.
    Dim Point2 As 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 (Point.op_Equality(Point1, Point2)) Then
        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}), _
            Me.Font, Brushes.Black, New PointF(10, 70))
    End If

End Sub
