# Point Struct

## Definition

Represents an x- and y-coordinate pair in two-dimensional space.

`public value class Point : IFormattable`

```
[System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter(typeof(System.Windows.PointConverter))]
public struct Point : IFormattable
```

```
[System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter(typeof(System.Windows.PointConverter))]
[System.Serializable]
public struct Point : IFormattable
```

```
[<System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter(typeof(System.Windows.PointConverter))>]
type Point = struct
interface IFormattable
```

```
[<System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter(typeof(System.Windows.PointConverter))>]
[<System.Serializable>]
type Point = struct
interface IFormattable
```

```
Public Structure Point
Implements IFormattable
```

## Examples

The following example shows how to check if two Point structures are not equal. It also illustrates how to assign values to a Point structure when the structure is being declared and after the structure has been declared.

```
// Checks if two Points are equal using the overloaded inequality operator.
private Boolean pointInequalityExample()
{
// Checks if two Points are not equal using the overloaded inequality operator.
// Declaring point1 and initializing x,y values
Point point1 = new Point(10, 5);
// Declaring point2 without initializing x,y values
Point point2 = new Point();
// Boolean to hold the result of the comparison
Boolean areNotEqual;
// assigning values to point2
point2.X = 15;
point2.Y = 40;
// Compare Point structures for equality.
// areNotEqual is True
areNotEqual = (point1 != point2);
return areNotEqual;
}
```

```
' Checks if two Points are equal using the overloaded inequality operator.
Private Function pointInequalityExample() As Boolean
' Checks if two Points are not equal using the overloaded inequality operator.
' Declaring point1 and initializing x,y values
Dim point1 As New Point(10, 5)
' Declaring point2 without initializing x,y values
Dim point2 As New Point()
' Boolean to hold the result of the comparison
Dim areNotEqual As Boolean
' assigning values to point2
point2.X = 15
point2.Y = 40
' Compare Point structures for equality.
' areNotEqual is True
areNotEqual = (point1 <> point2)
Return areNotEqual
End Function
```

## Remarks

In XAML, the delimiter between the X and Y values of a Point can be either a comma or a space.

Some cultures might use the comma character as the decimal delimiter instead of the period character. XAML processing for invariant culture defaults to en-US in most XAML processor implementations, and expects the period to be the decimal delimiter. You should avoid using the comma character as the decimal delimiter if specifying a Point in XAML, because that will clash with the string type conversion of a Point attribute value into the X and Y components.

### XAML Attribute Usage

```
<object property="x,y"/>
-or-
<object property="x y"/>
```

### XAML Values

*x*

The x-coordinate of this Point.

*y*

The y-coordinate of this Point.

## Constructors

Point(Double, Double) |
Creates a new Point structure that contains the specified coordinates. |

## Properties

X |
Gets or sets the X-coordinate value of this Point structure. |

Y |

## Methods

Add(Point, Vector) |
Adds a Vector to a Point and returns the result as a Point structure. |

Equals(Object) |
Determines whether the specified Object is a Point and whether it contains the same coordinates as this Point. |

Equals(Point) |
Compares two Point structures for equality. |

Equals(Point, Point) |
Compares two Point structures for equality. |

GetHashCode() |
Returns the hash code for this Point. |

Multiply(Point, Matrix) |
Transforms the specified Point structure by the specified Matrix structure. |

Offset(Double, Double) |
Offsets a point's X and Y coordinates by the specified amounts. |

Parse(String) | |

Subtract(Point, Point) |
Subtracts the specified Point from another specified Point and returns the difference as a Vector. |

Subtract(Point, Vector) |
Subtracts the specified Vector from the specified Point and returns the resulting Point. |

ToString() | |

ToString(IFormatProvider) |

## Operators

Addition(Point, Vector) |
Translates the specified Point by the specified Vector and returns the result. |

Equality(Point, Point) |
Compares two Point structures for equality. |

Explicit(Point to Size) |
Creates a Size structure with a Width equal to this point's X value and a Height equal to this point's Y value. |

Explicit(Point to Vector) |
Creates a Vector structure with an X value equal to the point's X value and a Y value equal to the point's Y value. |

Inequality(Point, Point) |
Compares two Point structures for inequality. |

Multiply(Point, Matrix) | |

Subtraction(Point, Point) |
Subtracts the specified Point from another specified Point and returns the difference as a Vector. |

Subtraction(Point, Vector) |
Subtracts the specified Vector from the specified Point and returns the resulting Point. |
