    How do you draw a line/cline Reply

    Hi All,

    I'm trying to draw a line using layer "BOARD GEOMETRY/OUTLINE".
    May I know how this can be done?

    Also is there any difference if I want to draw clines?

    thanks,
    newbie

    Use axlDBCreateLine
    eg:
    axlDBCreateLine(list(0:0 0:5 5:5 5:0 0:0), 0.0, "BOARD GEOMETRY/OUTLINE")

    Cheers, Dave

    The "simple graphics drawing utilities" are aimed at drawing in forms. Best avoided until you are familiar with Skill forms.

    What are you trying to do with the polygon commands?

    Cheers, Dave
