Vector Structure

Represents a displacement in 2-D space.

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

public struct Vector : IFormattable
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
/** @attribute TypeConverterAttribute(System.Windows.VectorConverter) */ 
public final class Vector extends ValueType implements IFormattable
<object property="x,y"/>
 x   System.Double  The vector's X component. For more information, see the X property.  y   System.Double  The vector's Y component. For more information, see the Y property.   

A Point represents a fixed position, but a Vector represents a direction and a magnitude (for example, velocity or acceleration). Thus, the endpoints of a line segment are points but their difference is a vector; that is, the direction and length of that line segment.

This example shows how to add two Vector structures.

// Adds a Vector to a Vector using the overloaded + operator.  

Vector vector1 = new Vector(20, 30);
Vector vector2 = new Vector(45, 70);
Vector vectorResult = new Vector();

// vectorResult is equal to (65,100)
vectorResult = vector1 + vector2;

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
