# Vector.Explicit Operator

## Definition

Converts a vector into a Size or a Point.

 Explicit(Vector to Point) Creates a Point with the X and Y values of this vector. Explicit(Vector to Size) Creates a Size from the offsets of this vector.

## Explicit(Vector to Point)

Creates a Point with the X and Y values of this vector.

``````public:
static explicit operator System::Windows::Point(System::Windows::Vector vector);``````
``public static explicit operator System.Windows.Point (System.Windows.Vector vector);``
``static member op_Explicit : System.Windows.Vector -> System.Windows.Point``
``Public Shared Narrowing Operator CType (vector As Vector) As Point``

#### Parameters

vector
Vector

The vector to convert.

#### Returns

A point with X- and Y-coordinate values equal to the X and Y offset values of `vector`.

### Examples

The following example shows how to convert a Vector into a Point.

``````private Point overloadedExplicitOperatorExample2()
{
Vector vector1 = new Vector(20, 30);

// Explicitly converts a Vector structure into a Point structure.
// returnPoint is equal to (20, 30).
Point returnPoint = (Point)vector1;

return returnPoint;
}
``````
``````Private Function overloadedExplicitOperatorExample2() As Point
Dim vector1 As New Vector(20, 30)

' Explicitly converts a Vector structure into a Point structure.
' returnPoint is equal to (20, 30).
Dim returnPoint As Point = CType(vector1, Point)

Return returnPoint

End Function
``````

## Explicit(Vector to Size)

Creates a Size from the offsets of this vector.

``````public:
static explicit operator System::Windows::Size(System::Windows::Vector vector);``````
``public static explicit operator System.Windows.Size (System.Windows.Vector vector);``
``static member op_Explicit : System.Windows.Vector -> System.Windows.Size``
``Public Shared Narrowing Operator CType (vector As Vector) As Size``

#### Parameters

vector
Vector

The vector to convert.

#### Returns

A Size with a Width equal to the absolute value of this vector's X property and a Height equal to the absolute value of this vector's Y property.

### Examples

The following example shows how to explicitly convert a Vector into a Size.

``````private Size overloadedExplicitOperatorExample1()
{
Vector vector1 = new Vector(20, 30);

// Explicitly converts a Vector structure into a Size structure.
// returnSize has a width of 20 and a height of 30.
Size returnSize = (Size)vector1;

return returnSize;
}
``````
``````Private Function overloadedExplicitOperatorExample1() As Size
Dim vector1 As New Vector(20, 30)

' Explicitly converts a Vector structure into a Size structure.
' returnSize has a width of 20 and a height of 30.
Dim returnSize As Size = CType(vector1, Size)

Return returnSize

End Function
