Return Value

Array containing the line font information (see Remarks)


This method breaks down the line font into its individual segment lengths.

Lines are repeating patterns of space and solid segments. The segCount argument returns the number of segments that define the pattern, and segLengths[] specifies the length of each segment. A negative length value indicates space.

For example:

Solid line: segCount = 1, segLenghts[] = {0.5}

Dashed line: segCount = 2, segLengths[] = {0.25, -0.25}

VARIANT format:

double segCount - Number of segments in the pattern

double segLengths[segCount] - Length of each segment
