Computes the magnitude of a quaternion.

Syntax

XMVECTOR XM_CALLCONV XMQuaternionLength(
  FXMVECTOR Q
);

Parameters

Q

Quaternion to measure.

Return Value

Returns a vector. The magnitude of Q is replicated into each component.

Remarks

The DirectXMath quaternion functions use an XMVECTOR 4-vector to represent quaternions, where the X, Y, and Z components are the vector part and the W component is the scalar part.
