public:
 static System::Windows::Vector Subtract(System::Windows::Point point1, System::Windows::Point point2);
public static System.Windows.Vector Subtract (System.Windows.Point point1, System.Windows.Point point2);
static member Subtract : System.Windows.Point * System.Windows.Point -> System.Windows.Vector
Public Shared Function Subtract (point1 As Point, point2 As Point) As Vector

Parameters

point1
Point Point Point Point

The point from which point2 is subtracted.

point2
Point Point Point Point

The point to subtract from point1.

Returns

The difference between point1 and point2.

Examples

The following example shows how to subtract a Point from another Point using the static Subtract method.

private Vector subtractExample2()
{

    Point point1 = new Point(10, 5);
    Point point2 = new Point(15, 40);

    // Subtracts a Point from a Point using the static Subtract method
    // and returns the difference as a Vector.
    // vectorResult is equal to (-5, -35)
    Vector vectorResult = Point.Subtract(point1, point2);

    return vectorResult;

}
Private Function subtractExample2() As Vector

	Dim point1 As New Point(10, 5)
	Dim point2 As New Point(15, 40)

	' Subtracts a Point from a Point using the static Subtract method
	' and returns the difference as a Vector.
	' vectorResult is equal to (-5, -35)
	Dim vectorResult As Vector = Point.Subtract(point1, point2)

	Return vectorResult
