Vector.Multiply Method (Vector, Vector)

 

Calculates the dot product of the two specified vectors and returns the result as a Double.

Namespace:   System.Windows
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)

public static double Multiply(
	Vector vector1,
	Vector vector2
)

Parameters

vector1
Type: System.Windows.Vector

The first vector to multiply.

vector2
Type: System.Windows.Vector

The second vector structure to multiply.

Return Value

Type: System.Double

A Double containing the scalar dot product of vector1 and vector2, which is calculated using the following formula:

(vector1.X * vector2.X) + (vector1.Y * vector2.Y)

The following example shows how to use this method to multiply a Vector by a Vector.

private Double getDotProductExample()
{
    Vector vector1 = new Vector(20, 30);
    Vector vector2 = new Vector(45, 70);
    Double doubleResult;

    // Return the dot product of the two specified vectors.
    // The dot product is calculated using the following 
    // formula: (vector1.X * vector2.X) + (vector1.Y * vector2.Y).
    // doubleResult is equal to 3000
    doubleResult = Vector.Multiply(vector1, vector2);

    return doubleResult;

}
