## Multiply(Vector3D, Matrix3D)

```
public:
static System::Windows::Media::Media3D::Vector3D operator *(System::Windows::Media::Media3D::Vector3D vector, System::Windows::Media::Media3D::Matrix3D matrix);
```

`public static System.Windows.Media.Media3D.Vector3D operator * (System.Windows.Media.Media3D.Vector3D vector, System.Windows.Media.Media3D.Matrix3D matrix);`

`static member ( * ) : System.Windows.Media.Media3D.Vector3D * System.Windows.Media.Media3D.Matrix3D -> System.Windows.Media.Media3D.Vector3D`

`Public Shared Operator * (vector As Vector3D, matrix As Matrix3D) As Vector3D`

#### Parameters

#### Returns

The result of transforming `vector`

by `matrix`

.

### Examples

The following example shows how to use the overloaded multiplication operator to transform a Vector3D structure by a Matrix3D structure.

```
// Multiplies a Vector3D by a Matrix3D using the overloaded * operator.
// Returns a Vector3D.
Vector3D vector1 = new Vector3D(20, 30, 40);
Matrix3D matrix1 = new Matrix3D(10, 10, 10, 0, 20, 20, 20, 0, 30, 30, 30, 0, 5, 10, 15, 1);
Vector3D vectorResult = new Vector3D();
vectorResult = vector1 * matrix1;
// vector Result is equal to (2000, 2000, 2000)
```

```
' Multiplies a Vector3D by a Matrix3D using the overloaded * operator.
' Returns a Vector3D.
Dim vector1 As New Vector3D(20, 30, 40)
Dim matrix1 As New Matrix3D(10, 10, 10, 0, 20, 20, 20, 0, 30, 30, 30, 0, 5, 10, 15, 1)
Dim vectorResult As New Vector3D()
vectorResult = vector1 * matrix1
' vector Result is equal to (2000, 2000, 2000)
