Returns or sets a value that determines the line style for output from graphics methods.


object.DrawStyle [= number]

The DrawStyle property syntax has these parts:

Part Description
Object An object expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.
Number An integer that specifies line style, as described in Settings.


The settings for number are:

Constant Setting Description
VbSolid 0 (Default) Solid
VbDash 1 Dash
VbDot 2 Dot
VbDashDot 3 Dash-Dot
VbDashDotDot 4 Dash-Dot-Dot
VbInvisible 5 Transparent

If DrawWidth is set to a value greater than 1, DrawStyle settings 1 through 4 produce a solid line (the DrawStyle property value isn't changed). If DrawWidth is set to 1, DrawStyle produces the effect described in the preceding table for each setting.
