Stored procedures
Declares the default color and style for the lines, rectangles, circles, ... contained in a variable of type picLayer.
MyImage is WDPic = "Test.gif"
MyLayer is picLayer
// Declare the default color and style for the different lines
MyLayer.Pen(LightGreen, 3)
IMG_MyDrawing = MyImage
<picLayer image>.Pen(<Color> [, <Line style> [, <Line thickness> [, <Opacity>]]])
<picLayer image>: picLayer variable
Name of the picLayer variable to be used.
<Color>: Integer or constant
Default color for the different lines. This color can correspond to:
  • an RGB color (returned by RGB),
  • an HSL color (returned by HSL),
  • a WLanguage preset color.
  • a variable of type Color. In this case, the opacity specified in the variable is taken into account.
<Line style>: Optional integer
Default style for the different lines:
  • 0 (by default): Solid line
  • 1: Dash (---)
  • 2: Dotted line (...)
  • 3: Dot and dash (-.-.-)
  • 4: Dash and two dots (-..-..-)
  • 5: Invisible line
<Line thickness>: Optional integer
Thickness of the line in pixels (1 by default).
<Opacity>: Optional integer
Opacity of color, included between 0 (transparent) and 255 (opaque). An opacity set to 128 is used to blend 50% of the color with the existing color found in the control.
  • This opacity will be taken into account if the drawing in the Image control has been initialized with the dWithOpacity constant (<picLayer variable>.StartDrawing).
  • If the <Color> parameter corresponds to a variable of type Color, this parameter must not be specified: the opacity specified in the variable will be taken into account.
