Point.Subtraction(Point, Size) Point.Subtraction(Point, Size) Point.Subtraction(Point, Size) Point.Subtraction(Point, Size) Operator

Definition

Translates a Point by the negative of a given Size.

public:
 static System::Drawing::Point operator -(System::Drawing::Point pt, System::Drawing::Size sz);
public static System.Drawing.Point operator - (System.Drawing.Point pt, System.Drawing.Size sz);
static member ( - ) : System.Drawing.Point * System.Drawing.Size -> System.Drawing.Point
Public Shared Operator - (pt As Point, sz As Size) As Point

Parameters

pt
Point Point Point Point

The Point to translate.

sz
Size Size Size Size

A Size that specifies the pair of numbers to subtract from the coordinates of pt.

Returns

A Point structure that is translated by the negative of a given Size structure.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the PointConverter and the Subtraction operator. This example is designed to be used with Windows Forms. Paste this code into a form and call the ShowPointConverter method when handling the form's Paint event, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

void ShowPointConverter( PaintEventArgs^ e )
{
   // Create the PointConverter.
   System::ComponentModel::TypeConverter^ converter = System::ComponentModel::TypeDescriptor::GetConverter( Point::typeid );
   Point point1 =  *dynamic_cast<Point^>(converter->ConvertFromString( "200, 200" ));

   // Use the subtraction operator to get a second point.
   Point point2 = point1 - System::Drawing::Size( 190, 190 );

   // Draw a line between the two points.
   e->Graphics->DrawLine( Pens::Black, point1, point2 );
}
private void ShowPointConverter(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    // Create the PointConverter.
    System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter converter = 
        System.ComponentModel.TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(typeof(Point));

    Point point1 = (Point) converter.ConvertFromString("200, 200");

    // Use the subtraction operator to get a second point.
    Point point2 = point1 - new Size(190, 190);

    // Draw a line between the two points.
    e.Graphics.DrawLine(Pens.Black, point1, point2);
}
Private Sub ShowPointConverter(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create the PointConverter.
    Dim converter As System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter = _
        System.ComponentModel.TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(GetType(Point))

    Dim point1 As Point = _
        CType(converter.ConvertFromString("200, 200"), Point)

    ' Use the subtraction operator to get a second point.
    Dim point2 As Point = Point.op_Subtraction(point1, _
        New Size(190, 190))

    ' Draw a line between the two points.
    e.Graphics.DrawLine(Pens.Black, point1, point2)
End Sub
