# Matrix.ResetMatrix.ResetMatrix.ResetMatrix.Reset Method

## Definition

Resets this Matrix to have the elements of the identity matrix.

``````public:
void Reset();``````
``public void Reset ();``
``member this.Reset : unit -> unit``
``Public Sub Reset ()``

## Examples

The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgs`e`, an Paint event object. The code performs the following actions:

• Creates a scaling matrix.

• Lists the matrix elements to the screen.

• Resets the matrix to identity.

• Lists the elements to the screen.

• Translates the matrix by 50 points in the x-axis and 40 points in the y-axis.

• Lists the elements of the translated matrix to the screen.

• Draws a rectangle is drawn to the screen prior to applying the matrix transform (the blue rectangle).

• Applies the transform to the rectangle.

• Draws the transformed rectangle is drawn to the screen (the red rectangle), using the same coordinates as the previous rectangle.

Notice that the red rectangle was not scaled (because of the reset) but was translated in the x-axis and y-axis.

## Remarks

The elements on the main diagonal of the identity matrix are 1. All other elements of the identity matrix are 0.
