Usage

[C#] public int dashLineColor(int color [, int patternCode ]);
[VB] Public Function dashLineColor(color As Integer [, patternCode As Integer ]) As Integer

Description

Creates a dash line color.

A dash line color is a dynamic color that switches on and off periodically. When it is used to draw a line, the line will appear as a dash line.

The style of the dash line is defined by a pattern code, which is a 4-byte integer. A value of PPQQRRSS (in hex) means the first PP pixels are turned on, followed by QQ pixels turned off, followed by RR pixels turned on, followed by SS pixels turned off, and then restart from PP again.

ChartDirector comes from several predefined constants for common dash line patterns.
