# Point.ExplicitPoint.ExplicitPoint.Explicit Operator

## Overloads

 Explicit(Point to Vector) Explicit(Point to Vector) 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. Explicit(Point to Size) Explicit(Point to Size) 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)Explicit(Point to Vector)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.

``````public:
static explicit operator System::Windows::Vector(System::Windows::Point point);``````
``public static explicit operator System.Windows.Vector (System.Windows.Point point);``
``static member op_Explicit : System.Windows.Point -> System.Windows.Vector``

#### Parameters

point
Point Point Point

The point to convert.

#### Returns

A vector with an X value equal to the point's X value and a Y value equal to the point's Y value.

### Examples

The following example shows how to explicitly convert a Point into a Vector.

``````private Vector overloadedExplicitOperatorVectorExample()
{

Point point1 = new Point(10, 5);

// Explicitly converts a Point structure into a Vector structure.
// returnVector is equal to (10,5).
Vector returnVector = (Vector)point1;

return returnVector;

}
``````
``````Private Function overloadedExplicitOperatorVectorExample() As Vector

Dim point1 As New Point(10, 5)

' Explicitly converts a Point structure into a Vector structure.
' returnVector is equal to (10,5).
Dim returnVector As Vector = CType(point1, Vector)

Return returnVector

End Function
``````

## Explicit(Point to Size)Explicit(Point to Size)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.

``````public:
static explicit operator System::Windows::Size(System::Windows::Point point);``````
``public static explicit operator System.Windows.Size (System.Windows.Point point);``
``static member op_Explicit : System.Windows.Point -> System.Windows.Size``

#### Parameters

point
Point Point Point

The point to convert.

#### Returns

A Size structure with a Width equal to this point's X value and a Height equal to this point's Y value.

### Examples

The following example shows how to explicitly convert a Point into a Size.

``````private Size overloadedExplicitOperatorSizeExample()
{

Point point1 = new Point(10, 5);

// Explicitly converts a Point structure into a Size structure.
// returnSize has a width of 10 and a height of 5
Size returnSize = (Size)point1;

return returnSize;

}
``````
``````Private Function overloadedExplicitOperatorSizeExample() As Size

Dim point1 As New Point(10, 5)

' Explicitly converts a Point structure into a Size structure.
' returnSize has a width of 10 and a height of 5
Dim returnSize As Size = CType(point1, Size)

Return returnSize

End Function
``````

### Remarks

Because a Size structure cannot be negative, the absolute values of the point's X and Y properties are used.
