	Matrix matrix


Type: System.Windows.Vector

The vector to transform.

Type: System.Windows.Media.Matrix

The transformation to apply to vector.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.Vector

The result of transforming vector by matrix.

The following example shows how to use this operator (*) to multiply a Vector structure by a Matrix structure.

    Vector vector1 = new Vector(20, 30);
    Matrix matrix1 = new Matrix(40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90);
    Vector vectorResult = new Vector();

    // Multiply the vector and matrix.
    // vectorResult is equal to (2600,3100).
    vectorResult = vector1 * matrix1;

    return vectorResult;
