Parameters

point1
Point3D

The Point3D structure to be subtracted from.

point2
Point3D

The Point3D structure to subtract from point1.

Returns

A Vector3D structure that represents the difference between point1 and point2.

Examples

The following example shows how to subtract a Point3D structure from a Point3D structure.

// Subtracts a Point3D from a Point3D using the static Subtract method.  
// Returns a Vector3D.

Point3D point1 = new Point3D(10, 5, 1);
Point3D point2 = new Point3D(15, 40, 60);
Vector3D vectorResult = new Vector3D();

vectorResult = Point3D.Subtract(point1, point2);
// vectorResult is equal to (-5, -35, -59)

// Displaying Results
syntaxString = "vectorResult = Point3D.Subtract(point1, point2);";
resultType = "Vector3D";
operationString = "Subtracting a Point3D from a Point3D";
ShowResults(vectorResult.ToString(), syntaxString, resultType, operationString);
