Namespace:  System.Windows.Media.Media3D
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public static Vector3D CrossProduct(
	Vector3D vector1,
	Vector3D vector2


Type: System.Windows.Media.Media3D.Vector3D
The first Vector3D structure to evaluate.
Type: System.Windows.Media.Media3D.Vector3D
The second Vector3D structure to evaluate.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.Media3D.Vector3D
The cross product of vector1 and vector2.

						// Calculates the cross product of two Vector3D structures 
                        // using the static CrossProduct method.  
						// Returns a Double.	

						Vector3D vector1 = new Vector3D(20, 30, 40);
						Vector3D vector2 = new Vector3D(45, 70, 80);
                        Vector3D crossProduct = new Vector3D();

                        crossProduct = Vector3D.CrossProduct(vector1,vector2);
                        // crossProduct is equal to (-400, 200, 50)
