- create / select graphic pen

Low-level graphics
(AFL 3.0)


SYNTAX GfxSelectPen( color, width = 1, penstyle = penSolid )
RETURNS NOTHING
FUNCTION GfxSelectPen initializes (if not already initialized) a pen with the specified style, width, and color. Then selects the pen as current for subsequent drawing operations.

Parameters:

  • color - specifies color for the pen
  • penstyle - specifies the style for the pen. Solid=0, Dash=1, Dot=2, Null=5 (invisible pen). Lines of width > 1 can only use solid style. For a list of other possible values, see the Microsoft docs on CreatePen Windows API function.
  • width - specifies the width of the pen. If this value is 0, the width in device units is always 1 pixel, regardless of the mapping mode (this is useful for drawing hairline lines on printer outputs).
