XMStoreShort2 function (directxpackedvector.h)

Stores an XMVECTOR in an XMSHORT2.


void XM_CALLCONV  noexcept XMStoreShort2(
  XMSHORT2  *pDestination,



Address at which to store the data.


Vector containing the data to store.

Return value



This function takes a vector, clamps it to the range -32767.0f to 32767.0f, converts the two most significant components into a signed, normalized integer format, and writes the results out to two short integer values at the given address. The most significant component is written to the first two bytes of the address and the next most significant component is written to the next two bytes of the address.

The following pseudocode demonstrates the operation of the function.

static const XMVECTOR  Min = {-32767.0f, -32767.0f, -32767.0f, -32767.0f};
static const XMVECTOR  Max = {32767.0f, 32767.0f, 32767.0f, 32767.0f};
XMVECTOR               N;
N = XMVectorClamp(V, Min, Max);
N = XMVectorRound(N);

pDestination->x = (int16_t)N.x; // 2 bytes to address pDestination
pDestination->y = (int16_t)N.y; // 2 bytes to address (uint8_t*)pDestination + 2

Platform Requirements
