Vector.CrossProduct(Vector, Vector) Vector.CrossProduct(Vector, Vector) Vector.CrossProduct(Vector, Vector) Vector.CrossProduct(Vector, Vector) Method

Definition

Calculates the cross product of two vectors.

public:
 static double CrossProduct(System::Windows::Vector vector1, System::Windows::Vector vector2);
public static double CrossProduct (System.Windows.Vector vector1, System.Windows.Vector vector2);
static member CrossProduct : System.Windows.Vector * System.Windows.Vector -> double
Public Shared Function CrossProduct (vector1 As Vector, vector2 As Vector) As Double

Parameters

vector1
Vector Vector Vector Vector

The first vector to evaluate.

vector2
Vector Vector Vector Vector

The second vector to evaluate.

Returns

The cross product of vector1 and vector2. The following formula is used to calculate the cross product:

(Vector1.X * Vector2.Y) - (Vector1.Y * Vector2.X)

Examples

The following example shows how to use this method to calculate the cross product of two Vector structures.

private Double crossProductExample()
{
    Vector vector1 = new Vector(20, 30);
    Vector vector2 = new Vector(45, 70);
    Double crossProduct;

    // crossProduct is equal to 50    
    crossProduct = Vector.CrossProduct(vector1, vector2);

    return crossProduct;

}
