## Vector Methods |

The Vector type exposes the following members.

Methods

Name | Description | |
---|---|---|

Add |
Add a vector to this one.
| |

CheckForSameDefinition(DefinitionalObject) |
Checks to determine if another instance has the same definition as this instance and
returns if it does. Derived classes MUST override this method and check
all new fields introduced by the derived class for definitional equivalence. It is NOT necessary
to check base class fields because the base class will already have done that. When overriding this method,
you should NOT call the base implementation because it will return for all derived-class instances.
Derived classes should check the type of other to preserve the symmetric nature of IsSameDefinition(Object).
(Overrides DefinitionalObjectCheckForSameDefinition(DefinitionalObject).) | |

CheckForSameDefinition(Vector) |
Checks to determine if another instance has the same definition as this instance and
returns if it does. Derived classes MUST override this method and check
all new fields introduced by the derived class for definitional equivalence. It is NOT necessary
to check base class fields because the base class will already have done that. When overriding this method,
you should NOT call the base implementation because it will return for all derived-class instances.
Derived classes should check the type of other to preserve the symmetric nature of IsSameDefinition(Object).
| |

Clone |
Clones this object using the specified context.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.) | |

ComputeCurrentDefinitionHashCode |
Computes a hash code based on the current properties of this object. Derived classes MUST override this
method and compute a hash code that combines: a unique hash code seed, the base implementation result, and
the hash codes of all new fields introduced by the derived class which are used in the
CheckForSameDefinition(DefinitionalObject) method.
(Overrides DefinitionalObjectComputeCurrentDefinitionHashCode.) | |

CreateVectorDerivative |
Constructs a vector which represents a derivative of this vector.
| |

Cross |
Produce the vector cross product between this vector and another one.
| |

Divide(Double) |
Divide this vector by a scale factor.
| |

Divide(Scalar) |
Divide this vector by a scale factor.
| |

Dot |
Produce the vector dot product between this vector and another one.
| |

EnumerateDependencies |
Enumerates the dependencies of this object by calling
EnumerateT(T) for each object that this object directly depends upon.
Derived classes which contain additional dependencies MUST override this method, call the base
implementation, and enumerate dependencies introduced by the derived class.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.) | |

Equals | Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.) | |

Finalize | Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.) | |

Freeze |
Freezes this object. Further attempts to modify it will result
in an ObjectFrozenException.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.) | |

FreezeAggregatedObjects |
Called by Freeze to also freeze any objects that are considered to be a part of this object.
Derived classes which contain additional aggregated objects MUST override this method, call the base
implementation, and freeze aggregated objects introduced by the derived class. The objects that need to be
frozen in this method are frequently created in this object's constructor and are not settable via
properties.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.) | |

GetDefinitionHashCode |
Gets a hash code representing the definition of this object.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.) | |

GetEvaluator |
Gets an evaluator that can be used to find the Motion<Cartesian>
of this vector at a given date with respect to the axes in which it is defined.
See GetEvaluator(EvaluatorGroup) for details.
| |

GetEvaluator(EvaluatorGroup) |
Gets an evaluator that can be used to find the
Motion<Cartesian>
of this vector in its parent Axes
at a given JulianDate.
Consider using the methods of GeometryTransformer
instead of calling this method directly.
| |

GetHashCode | Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.) | |

GetScalarElement(CartesianElement, Axes) |
Gets a Scalar representing the X, Y, Z, or Magnitude of this vector.
| |

GetScalarElement(CartesianElement, Axes, Int32) |
Gets a Scalar representing the X, Y, Z, or Magnitude of this vector,
or any derivative of those elements.
| |

GetService |
Gets the service object of the specified type.
| |

GetType | Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.) | |

IsSameDefinition |
Determines if this object has the same definition as another object.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.) | |

MemberwiseClone | Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.) | |

Multiply(Double) |
Multiply this vector by a scale factor.
| |

Multiply(Scalar) |
Multiply this vector by a scale factor.
| |

Subtract |
Subtract a vector from this one.
| |

ThrowIfFrozen |
Throws ObjectFrozenException if this object IsFrozen.
This method should be called from any method or property that modifies this object.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.) | |

ToString | Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.) |
