AbsoluteDashing

AbsoluteDashing[{d1,d2,}]

is a graphics directive which specifies that lines which follow are to be drawn dashed, with successive segments having absolute lengths d1, d2, (repeated cyclically).

AbsoluteDashing[d]

is equivalent to AbsoluteDashing[{d,d}].

Details

  • The absolute lengths are measured in units of printer's points, equal before magnification to of an inch.
  • AbsoluteDashing[{}] specifies that lines should be solid. »
  • AbsoluteDashing can be used in both two- and three-dimensional graphics, as well as in Style specifications.
  • The following symbolic forms for d can be used: Tiny, Small, Medium, and Large. »
  • If a segment has a length di specified as 0, it is drawn as a dot whose diameter is the thickness of the line.

Properties & Relations  (2)

AbsoluteDashing defines the length of a segment in units of printer's points:

AbsoluteDashing is independent of the image size:

Dashing defines the length of a segment as a fraction of the total width of the graphic:

Dashing depends on the image size:
