Point is a Windows Runtime structure that represents an X,Y position in a coordinate system. A Point is used as a value in many different Windows Runtime APIs.

PointHelper is one of several Helper classes that are intended to provide utility methods for Windows Runtime structure values. C# and Microsoft Visual Basic code can use members of Point instead, because utility members are available directly on the structure due to .NET Framework runtime support. C++ code can only access the X and Y data values on Point. For C++ developers, approximately the same utility features that a Microsoft Visual Basic developer could use directly on Point are available in a static form on the PointHelper class.


FromCoordinates(Single, Single)

Creates a new Point value using x- and y-coordinate values in pixels. C# and Microsoft Visual Basic code should use the Point(Double,Double) constructor instead.
