# Line

Line[{pt1, pt2, ...}]
is a graphics primitive that represents a line joining a sequence of points.

Line[{{pt11, pt12, ...}, {pt21, ...}, ...}]
represents a collection of lines.

## Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• Line can be used in both Graphics and Graphics3D (two- and three-dimensional graphics).
• The positions of points can be specified either in ordinary coordinates, as or , or in scaled coordinates, as Scaled[{x, y}] or Scaled[{x, y, z}]. »
• Offset can be used to specify coordinates in two dimensions. »
• The line consists of a sequence of straight segments joining the specified points.
• Line thickness can be specified using Thickness or AbsoluteThickness, as well as Thick and Thin. »
• Line dashing can be specified using Dashing or AbsoluteDashing, as well as Dashed, Dotted, etc. »
• Line shading or coloring can be specified using CMYKColor, GrayLevel, Hue, Opacity, or RGBColor. »
• The option VertexColors->{c1, c2, ...} can be used to specify that the color of the line should interpolate between colors specified for each point.
• In 3D, the option VertexNormals->{n1, n2, ...} can be used to specify effective normals at each point, to be interpolated for purposes of smooth shading.
• Joining of line segments can be specified using JoinForm.
• Line caps can be specified using CapForm.
• Individual coordinates and lists of coordinates in lines can be Dynamic objects.
