# Point.Subtract Method

## Definition

Subtracts the specified Point or Vector from the specified Point.

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

The point from which `point2` is subtracted.

point2
Point

The point to subtract from `point1`.

#### Returns

Vector

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)

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``
``Public Shared Function Subtract (point As Point, vector As Vector) As Point``

#### Parameters

point
Point

The point from which `vector` is subtracted.

vector
Vector

The `vector` to subtract from `point`.

#### Returns

Point

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
