ComposeTransform Method (IMathUtility)

Creates a new transform matrix.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function ComposeTransform( _
   ByVal XVec As MathVector, _
   ByVal YVec As MathVector, _
   ByVal ZVec As MathVector, _
   ByVal TransVec As MathVector, _
   ByVal Scale As System.Double _
) As MathTransform
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IMathUtility
Dim XVec As MathVector
Dim YVec As MathVector
Dim ZVec As MathVector
Dim TransVec As MathVector
Dim Scale As System.Double
Dim value As MathTransform
value = instance.ComposeTransform(XVec, YVec, ZVec, TransVec, Scale)
MathTransform ComposeTransform( 
   MathVector XVec,
   MathVector YVec,
   MathVector ZVec,
   MathVector TransVec,
   System.double Scale
MathTransform^ ComposeTransform( 
&   MathVector^ XVec,
&   MathVector^ YVec,
&   MathVector^ ZVec,
&   MathVector^ TransVec,
&   System.double Scale



X-axis of the transform origin


Y-axis of the transform origin


Z-axis of the transform origin


Translation of the origin in space


Scale factor (typically 1; must be > 0)

Return Value

New transform


XVec, YVec and ZVec are expected to be mutually orthogonal. These three vectors can be non-unit vectors and are unitized during the construction of the IMathTransform.
