# PointF.Subtract Method

## Definition

Translates a PointF by the negative of a specified size.

## Overloads

Subtract(PointF, Size) |
Translates a PointF by the negative of a specified size. |

Subtract(PointF, SizeF) |
Translates a PointF by the negative of a specified size. |

## Subtract(PointF, Size)

Translates a PointF by the negative of a specified size.

```
public:
static System::Drawing::PointF Subtract(System::Drawing::PointF pt, System::Drawing::Size sz);
```

`public static System.Drawing.PointF Subtract (System.Drawing.PointF pt, System.Drawing.Size sz);`

`static member Subtract : System.Drawing.PointF * System.Drawing.Size -> System.Drawing.PointF`

`Public Shared Function Subtract (pt As PointF, sz As Size) As PointF`

#### Parameters

#### Returns

### Remarks

The Subtract method subtracts the Width of the specified size from the x-coordinate of the PointF and the Height from the y-coordinate of the PointF.

public:
static System::Drawing::PointF Subtract(System::Drawing::PointF pt, System::Drawing::SizeF sz);
```

`public static System.Drawing.PointF Subtract (System.Drawing.PointF pt, System.Drawing.SizeF sz);`

### Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Subtract operator. To run this example, paste the following code into a Windows Form. Handle the form's Paint event and call `SubtractExample`

, passing `e`

as PaintEventArgs.

```
private void SubtractExample(PaintEventArgs e)
{
PointF point1 = new PointF(120.5F, 120F);
SizeF size1 = new SizeF(120.5F, 30.5F);
PointF point2 = PointF.Subtract(point1, size1);
e.Graphics.DrawLine(Pens.Blue, point1, point2);
}
```

```
Private Sub SubtractExample(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)
Dim point1 As New PointF(120.5F, 120F)
Dim size1 As New SizeF(120.5F, 30.5F)
Dim point2 As PointF = PointF.Subtract(point1, size1)
e.Graphics.DrawLine(Pens.Blue, point1, point2)
End Sub
```

### Remarks

The Subtract method subtracts the Width of the specified size from the x-coordinate of the PointF and the Height from the y-coordinate of the PointF.
