Description

Procedure PenPatN sets the active pen pattern (line style) for the document.

If patNumber is in the range 0 to 71 the linestyle will be set to the corresponding fill pattern. A negative value, will set the linestyle to the line type resource whose index is the negative of the value.

PROCEDURE PenPatN(
patNumber  :LONGINT);
def vs.PenPatN(patNumber):
    return None

Parameters

patNumber LONGINT Pattern/linestyle ID value.

Remarks

(Orso 2016.02.29): You can't pass numbered indexes starting from -1 as in the past before VW 18 (introduction of named dash styles, with a place in the name list), you need to pass a valid negative index, this could start by any value. VW 2014 will have a delayed crash upon passing a non valid index. Please also mind that a document doesn't necessarily have dash styles loaded.

Example

PenPatN(25);
{ uses fill pattern 25 as the active pen pattern }

PenPatN(-10);
{ sets the line type with the index of 10 as the active pen pattern }
