Polyline function

The Polyline function draws a series of line segments by connecting the points in the specified array.

Syntax


BOOL Polyline(
  _In_       HDC   hdc,
  _In_ const POINT *lppt,
  _In_       int   cPoints
);

Parameters

hdc [in]

A handle to a device context.

lppt [in]

A pointer to an array of POINT structures, in logical units.

cPoints [in]

The number of points in the array. This number must be greater than or equal to two.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.
