How do i rotate a quad by its origen/pivot point? direct3d

i use the following: for define my quad i know how to rotate it by it rotates by the top-left point and not by his origen point? any help?

i really need this.

vertexarray[0].x := 0;
vertexarray[0].y := 0;
vertexarray[0].z := 0.0;

vertexarray[1].x := 0;
vertexarray[1].y := 64;
vertexarray[1].z := 0.0;

vertexarray[2].x :=  0;
vertexarray[2].y :=  0;
vertexarray[2].z := 0.0;
vertexarray[2].rhw := 1.0;

 vertexarray[3].x :=  64;
vertexarray[3].y :=  0;
vertexarray[3].z := 0.0;


 vertexarray[4].x :=  64;
vertexarray[4].y :=  0;
vertexarray[4].z := 0.0;


 vertexarray[5].x :=  64;
vertexarray[5].y :=  64;
vertexarray[5].z := 0.0;

 vertexarray[6].x :=  0;
vertexarray[6].y :=  64;
vertexarray[6].z := 0.0;

shift the to left point to the origin, rotate around  the origin, translate back

if your *origin is the center, then substract every x- and y-component of each vertex with 32 and rotate it then:

vertexarray[0].x := 0-32;
vertexarray[0].y := 0-32;
vertexarray[0].z := 0.0;

vertexarray[1].x := 0-32;
vertexarray[1].y := 64-32;
vertexarray[1].z := 0.0;

vertexarray[2].x :=  0-32;
vertexarray[2].y :=  0-32;
vertexarray[2].z := 0.0;
vertexarray[2].rhw := 1.0;

 vertexarray[3].x :=  64-32;
vertexarray[3].y :=  0-32;
vertexarray[3].z := 0.0;


 vertexarray[4].x :=  64-32;
vertexarray[4].y :=  0-32;
vertexarray[4].z := 0.0;


 vertexarray[5].x :=  64-32;
vertexarray[5].y :=  64-32;
vertexarray[5].z := 0.0;

 vertexarray[6].x :=  0-32;
vertexarray[6].y :=  64-32;
vertexarray[6].z := 0.0;


good luck :)

I thought you said you wanted to rotate around the top-left point rather than around (0,0,0)
Do you want to rotate around its midpoint?

yeah by his midpoint called povot. anyway without locking vertex/
there must be a fucntion using direct3d utils.

vertex locking takes takes off mush speed of a game.

multiply the
translate by povot matrix
*
rotate matrix
*
translate by -povot matrix
The resulting matrix id a rotation around povot
Apply that matrix to your vertexarray
