New in 2020r2

Specifies the on/off dash pattern.

Notes

Passing an array with the values 1.0, 2.0 means a dash of 1 unit with a spacing of 2 units per dash.

Setting LineDash to Nil restores drawing to solid lines.

LineDash affects DrawLine, DrawOval, DrawPath, DrawPolygon, DrawRectangle, and DrawRoundRectangle.

LineCap and LineJoin will affect how the dashes are drawn.

Sample Code

Draw a diagonal line with 2 unit dashes and 3 unit gaps

g.PenSize = 5
g.LineDash = Array(2.0, 3.0)
g.DrawLine(0, 0, g.Width, g.Height)
