Matrix.HasInverse Property


Gets a value that indicates whether this Matrix structure is invertible.

 property bool HasInverse { bool get(); };
public bool HasInverse { get; }
member this.HasInverse : bool
Public ReadOnly Property HasInverse As Boolean

Property Value

true if the Matrix has an inverse; otherwise, false. The default is true.


The following example checks whether a Matrix is invertible. If it is invertible, the Matrix is inverted.

private Matrix inverseExample()
    // Creating a Matrix structure.
    Matrix myMatrix = new Matrix(5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30);
    // Checking if myMatrix is invertible.
    if (myMatrix.HasInverse)

        // Invert myMatrix. myMatrix is now 
        // equal to (-0.4, 0.2 , 0.3, -0.1, 1, -2) 
        // Return the inverted matrix.
        return myMatrix;
        throw new InvalidOperationException("The matrix is not invertible.");
