Description

Procedure SetDashStyle creates a new linestyle in a VectorWorks document. Parameter swt defines whether the linestyle will be scaled with thickness, and parameter numPairs specifies the number of length pairs defining the linestyle.

The linestyle is defined by up to five black/white length pairs, which are specified in parameters pair1 through pair5. The minimum length of any given black or white parameter is 1 point, or 1/72 of an inch, and the line specification must be in pairs.

PROCEDURE SetDashStyle(
swt  :BOOLEAN;
numPairs  :INTEGER;
pair1  :REAL;
pair2  :REAL;
pair3  :REAL;
pair4  :REAL;
pair5  :REAL);
def vs.SetDashStyle(swt, numPairs, pair1, pair2, pair3, pair4, pair5):
    return None

Parameters

swt BOOLEAN
numPairs INTEGER
pair1 REAL
pair2 REAL
pair3 REAL
pair4 REAL
pair5 REAL

Remarks

Orso, 2014.04.08: It creates a generically named dash style. Use VS:SetDashStyleN to name the new style during creation. The dash-gap values must be in page inches. The routine can be expressed as below, whereby you'll only enter as many dashX-gapX values as needed:
SetDashStyle(scalesWithThickness: BOOLEAN; numPairs: INTEGER; dash1, gap1, dash2, gap2, dash3, gap3, dash4, gap4, dash5, gap5: REAL);

Example

VectorScript

SetDashStyle(TRUE, 0,1",1 /4", 1/4", 1/4");
