Appendix I - Markers

Marker Styles and Constants

A marker style constant can be created by combining some of the basic elements listed below (Root Type, Base, Fill, Half Tick and Tail).

Root Type Constant
Arrow Marker
ConcavedCurvedArrowMarker 1
SShapedMarker 1
RectangleMarker 1
Base (Only meaningful for ArrowMarker and ConcaveCurvedArrowMarke) Constant
OpenBaseMarker 102
AngleBaseMarker 204
ArcBaseMarker 307
Fill Constant
WhiteFillMarker 12
NoFillMarker 25


  1. NoFillMarker is the only valid setting for LassoMarker, DimSlashMarker, and DimCrossMarker
Tail (Meaningless for CircleMarker, DimCrossMarker, LassoMarker, HexagonMarker, ConeMarker, and RectangleMarker) Constant
TailMarker 32768
Half Tick (Meaningless for LassoMarker and ConeMarker) Constant
LeftHalfTickMarker 16384
RightHalfTickMarker 24576
Useful Composite Constants (Use these instead of Simpe Constants) Constant
OpenBaseNoFillMarker 128
NoFillLassoMarker 26
NoFillDimSlashMarker 25
NoFillDimSlashMarker 25
NoFillConeMarker 264
WhiteFillConeMarker 136

Vs appendix clip image002 0002.jpg style = 16390 <=> 6 + 0 + 16384 (HexagonMarker + LineColorFillMarker + LeftHalfTickMarker

Marker Thicknes Basis and Unit

The marker thickness basis constant specifies the type and unit of the marker thickness to be set. A marker thickness basis constant is created by adding the thickness unit to the thickness basis. Note that the thickness value and unit are only meaningful for custom thickness.

Marker Thickness Basis Constant
Use Line Thickness 0
Use Dim Thickness 1
Custom Thickness 2
Marker Thickness Unit Constant
Mils 0
Points 16
Millimeters 32
thicknessBasis = 34 <=> 2 + 32 (Custom thickness in Millimeters)
thicknessBasis = 18 <=> 2 + 16 (Custom thickness in Points)
