# Point.SubtractPoint.SubtractPoint.SubtractPoint.Subtract Method

## Definition

Subtracts the specified Point or Vector from the specified Point.

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

## Subtract(Point, Point)Subtract(Point, Point)Subtract(Point, Point)Subtract(Point, Point)

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

``````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

End Function
``````

## Subtract(Point, Vector)Subtract(Point, Vector)Subtract(Point, Vector)

Subtracts the specified Vector from the specified Point and returns the resulting Point.

``````public:
static System::Windows::Point Subtract(System::Windows::Point point, System::Windows::Vector vector);``````
``public static System.Windows.Point Subtract (System.Windows.Point point, System.Windows.Vector vector);``
``static member Subtract : System.Windows.Point * System.Windows.Vector -> System.Windows.Point``

#### Parameters

point
Point Point Point Point

The point from which `vector` is subtracted.

vector
Vector Vector Vector Vector

The `vector` to subtract from `point`.

#### Returns

The difference between `point` and `vector`.

### Examples

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

``````private Point subtractExample1()
{

Point point1 = new Point(10, 5);
Vector vector1 = new Vector(20, 30);

// Subtracts a Vector from a Point using the static Subtract method
// and returns the difference as a Point.
// pointResult is equal to (-10, -25).
Point pointResult = Point.Subtract(point1, vector1);

return pointResult;

}
``````
``````Private Function subtractExample1() As Point

Dim point1 As New Point(10, 5)
Dim vector1 As New Vector(20, 30)

' Subtracts a Vector from a Point using the static Subtract method
' and returns the difference as a Point.
' pointResult is equal to (-10, -25).
Dim pointResult As Point = Point.Subtract(point1, vector1)

Return pointResult

End Function
