LineStyleDefinition Namespace

A line style definition is a uniquely named pattern that repeats as it is displayed along a curve path. In the absence of a line style, curve display is limited to solid lines with a width in pixels. There are three varieties of line styles:

  • A style described by a stroke pattern (series of dashes and gaps) that may also include symbol graphics.
  • A style using pre-defined pixel bit patterns LinePixels for dashed display (Code1-Code7).
  • A style that uses a texture.

A definition is defined by one or more components. A component is saved as a "file property" and can be referenced by other components. The line style definition references a component by file property id and type and is saved as a dictionary element.
