## Subtract(Point, Point)

```
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

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)

' 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
```
