## Definition

## Overloads

Subtraction(Point, Point) Subtraction(Point, Point) Subtraction(Point, Point) Subtraction(Point, Point) |
Subtracts the specified Point from another specified Point and returns the difference as a Vector. |

Subtraction(Point, Vector) Subtraction(Point, Vector) Subtraction(Point, Vector) |
Subtracts the specified Vector from the specified Point and returns the resulting Point. |

## Subtraction(Point, Point) Subtraction(Point, Point) Subtraction(Point, Point) Subtraction(Point, Point)

Subtracts the specified Point from another specified Point and returns the difference as a Vector.

```
public:
static System::Windows::Vector operator -(System::Windows::Point point1, System::Windows::Point point2);
```

`public static System.Windows.Vector operator - (System.Windows.Point point1, System.Windows.Point point2);`

`static member ( - ) : System.Windows.Point * System.Windows.Point -> System.Windows.Vector`

`Public Shared Operator - (point1 As Point, point2 As Point) As Vector`

#### Parameters

#### Returns

### Examples

The following example shows how to subtract a Point from another Point and return a Vector using the overloaded (-) operator.

```
private Vector overloadedSubtractionOperatorExample2()
{
Point point1 = new Point(10, 5);
Point point2 = new Point(15, 40);
// Subtracts a Point from another Point using the overloaded subtraction (-)
// operator and returns the difference as a Vector.
// vectorResult is equal to (-5, -35).
Vector vectorResult = point1 - point2;
return vectorResult;
}
```

```
Private Function overloadedSubtractionOperatorExample2() As Vector
Dim point1 As New Point(10, 5)
Dim point2 As New Point(15, 40)
' Subtracts a Point from another Point using the overloaded subtraction (-)
' operator and returns the difference as a Vector.
' vectorResult is equal to (-5, -35).
Dim vectorResult As Vector = point1 - point2
Return vectorResult
End Function
