# matrix4x4 QML Basic Type

A matrix4x4 type is a 4-row and 4-column matrix

A `matrix4x4` type has sixteen values, each accessible via the properties `m11` through `m44` in QML (in row/column order). Values of this type can be composed with the Qt.matrix4x4() function. Each attribute in a matrix4x4 is stored as a real (single-precision on ARM, double-precision on x86).

The matrix4x4 type has the following idempotent functions which can be invoked in QML:

// -4, -4, -4, -4, -4, -4, -4)```
vector4d row(int which)Returns the vector4d row of `this` specified by `which`. Note: the `which` is 0-based access into the matrix.
```var a = Qt.matrix4x4(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16);
var b = Qt.vector4d(a.m21, a.m22, a.m23, a.m24);
var c = a.row(2); // zero based access!  so not equal to b
console.log(b.toString() + " " + c.toString());
// QVector4D(5, 6, 7, 8) QVector4D(9, 10, 11, 12)```
vector4d column(int which)Returns the vector4d column of `this` specified by `which`. Note: the `which` is 0-based access into the matrix.

console.log(b); // 6```
matrix4x4 inverted()Returns the inverse of `this` matrix4x4 if it exists, else the identity matrix.

bool fuzzyEquals(matrix4x4 other, real epsilon)Returns true if `this` matrix4x4 is approximately equal to the `other` matrix4x4. The approximation will be true if each attribute of `this` is within `epsilon` of the respective attribute of `other`. Note that `epsilon` is an optional argument, the default `epsilon` is 0.00001.
```var a = Qt.matrix4x4(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16);
var b = Qt.matrix4x4(1.0001,2.0001,3.0002,4.0003,5.0001,6.0002,
7.0002,8.0004, 9.0001,10.0003,
11.0003,12.0004,13.0001,
14.0002,15.0003,16.0004);
var c = a.fuzzyEquals(b);        // default epsilon
var d = a.fuzzyEquals(b, 0.005); // supplied epsilon
