Graph IDEDraw Attributes ► Simple Draw Attributes

Simple Draw Attributes are stroke and fill related, such as color and width. The figure below shows a very simple example of these attributes.

Fill And Stroke

Fill And stroke graphical attributes are the simplest draw attributes. Examples of which are shown in the figure below.

Note that for some graphics, such as a Scatter graphic, the stroke is not actually the boundary of the graphic. In that case it is the vectors drawn to each point from a predefined origin. Likewise, for a Function the stroke is the curve (which does not define a boundary of an area, but rather the top of an area).

Definitions

• Fill: The interior of a graphic.

• Fill Color: The color of the fill.

• Stroke: The boundary of a graphic. The stroke is drawn after the fill so the fill never obscures it.

• Stroke Color: The color of the boundary.

Dash Pattern

The dash pattern specifies the way a single contiguous stroke is drawn in regular pieces. Examples are shown below.

Definitions

• Continuous: The dash is one solid stroke, i.e.: there is no dash.

• si bi: The dash is specified as a sequence of on and off segments define in stroke units such as: b1 s1 b2 s2 ... bn sn where bi is the length of the blank segment and si is the length of the stroked (drawn) segment.

• Join: Defines the way segments are joined and is one of non-mitered, rounded or mitered.

• Cap: Defines the way one segment is terminated and is one of truncated, rounded or extended.
