I am working in A CScrollView.  Currently, I do a pDC->LineTo() call where I pass in two points.  But, I would
like it to look like this "..............." instead of "________"  . What's the best way to do this?  I tried to do a for loop, where I drew each dot then advanced the x position by 1 until I finished....but this didn't display consistently nor correctly. Sometimes, it would only show the last dot.

Thanks

You should use a different pen style.

for example:

void CMyView::OnDraw(CDC* pDC){

CPen   MyPen(PS_DOT, 2, RGB(0x00,0x00,0x00));

pDC->SelectObject(MyPen);
pDC->MoveTo(0,0);
pDC->LineTo(600,600);
}



Have fun.
