CreatePen (Windows CE 5.0)
This function creates a logical pen that has the specified style, width, and color. The pen can subsequently be selected into a device context and used to draw lines and curves.
HPEN CreatePen( int fnPenStyle, int nWidth, COLORREF crColor );
- [in] Specifies the pen style. It can be any one of the following values.
Value Description PS_SOLID Pen is solid. PS_DASH Pen is dashed.
This style is valid only when the pen width is one or less in device units.
PS_NULL Pen is invisible.
- [in] Specifies the width of the pen, in logical units.
If nWidth is zero, the pen is a single pixel wide, regardless of the current transformation.
CreatePen returns a pen with the specified width bit with the PS_SOLID style if you specify a width greater than one for the PS_DASH style.
- [in] Specifies a color reference for the pen color.
Handle to a logical pen indicates success. NULL indicates failure. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
After an application creates a logical pen, it can select that pen into a device context by calling the SelectObject function. After a pen is selected into a device context, it can be used to draw lines and curves.
If the value specified by the nWidth parameter is zero, a line drawn with the created pen will always be a single pixel wide regardless of the current transformation.
If the value specified by nWidth is greater than 1, the fnPenStyle parameter must be PS_NULL or PS_SOLID.
User-specified endcap styles, such as PS_ENDCAP_ROUND, are not supported.
When you no longer need the pen, call the DeleteObject function to delete it.
