Detailed Description

template<typename T>
class sf::Vector2< T >

Utility template class for manipulating 2-dimensional vectors.

sf::Vector2 is a simple class that defines a mathematical vector with two coordinates (x and y).

It can be used to represent anything that has two dimensions: a size, a point, a velocity, etc.

The template parameter T is the type of the coordinates. It can be any type that supports arithmetic operations (+, -, /, *) and comparisons (==, !=), for example int or float.

You generally don't have to care about the templated form (sf::Vector2<T>), the most common specializations have special typedefs:

  • sf::Vector2<float> is sf::Vector2f
  • sf::Vector2<int> is sf::Vector2i
  • sf::Vector2<unsigned int> is sf::Vector2u

The sf::Vector2 class has a small and simple interface, its x and y members can be accessed directly (there's no accessor like setX(), getX()) and it contains no mathematical function like dot product, cross product, length, etc.

Usage example:

sf::Vector2f v1(16.5f, 24.f);
v1.x = 18.2f;
float y = v1.y;
sf::Vector2f v2 = v1 * 5.f;
v3 = v1 + v2;
bool different = (v2 != v3);

Note: for 3-dimensional vectors, see sf::Vector3.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

template<typename T>
sf::Vector2< T >::Vector2 ( )

Default constructor.

Creates a Vector2(0, 0).

template<typename T>
sf::Vector2< T >::Vector2 ( X,
Y 
)

Construct the vector from its coordinates.

Parameters
XX coordinate
YY coordinate
template<typename T>
template<typename U >
sf::Vector2< T >::Vector2 ( const Vector2< U > &  vector)
explicit

Construct the vector from another type of vector.

This constructor doesn't replace the copy constructor, it's called only when U != T. A call to this constructor will fail to compile if U is not convertible to T.

Parameters
vectorVector to convert
