# Vector.Subtract(Vector, Vector)Vector.Subtract(Vector, Vector)Vector.Subtract(Vector, Vector)Vector.Subtract(Vector, Vector) Method

## Definition

Subtracts the specified vector from another specified vector.

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

#### Parameters

vector1
Vector Vector Vector Vector

The vector from which `vector2` is subtracted.

vector2
Vector Vector Vector Vector

The vector to subtract from `vector1`.

#### Returns

The difference between `vector1` and `vector2`.

## Examples

The following example shows how to use this method to subtract a Vector structure from a Vector structure.

``````private Vector subtractExample()
{

Vector vector1 = new Vector(20, 30);
Vector vector2 = new Vector(45, 70);

// Subtract vector2 from vector1.
// vectorResult is equal to (-25, -40)
Vector vectorResult = Vector.Subtract(vector1, vector2);

return vectorResult;

}
``````
``````Private Function subtractExample() As Vector

Dim vector1 As New Vector(20, 30)
Dim vector2 As New Vector(45, 70)

' Subtract vector2 from vector1.
' vectorResult is equal to (-25, -40)
Dim vectorResult As Vector = Vector.Subtract(vector1, vector2)

Return vectorResult

End Function
