# Dashing

 Dashing[{r1, r2, ...}]is a two-dimensional graphics directive which specifies that lines which follow are to be drawn dashed, with successive segments of lengths r1, r2, ... (repeated cyclically). The ri are given as a fraction of the total width of the graph. Dashing[r]is equivalent to Dashing[{r, r}].
• Dashing can be used in both two- and three-dimensional graphics, as well as in Style specifications.
• The following symbolic forms for r can be used: Tiny, Small, Medium and Large. These specify absolute segment lengths independent of the total width of the graphic.  »
• If a segment has a length ri specified as 0, it is drawn as a dot whose diameter is the thickness of the line.  »
Specify the dashing of lines as successive segments with scaled lengths:
 Out[1]=
 Out[2]=

Set the dashing of edges of polygons:
 Out[2]=
 Out[4]=

Set the dashing of lines in plots using PlotStyle:
 Out[1]=

Set the dashing of the frame:
 Out[1]=
