Hi

I have an app where I draw on a picture box, much like you would with MSPaint.  I want to set a custom pen style so that I can have the user draw what looks like roads, highways, and rivers.

Thanks,

Matt

Hi Dr. Delphi,

The first article looks like exactly what I want, except it is VB.net.  I am using VB6.  Do you know of a way to do it with 6?

Thanks,

Matt

This will work for you in VB6 as well... it is just straight Windows32 API functions. There's nothing VB specific in it.


Good luck!!
