    CompoundArray Property
    In This Topic
    Gets array values that specify a compound line made up of parallel lines and spaces of this side of the complex border.
    Syntax
    'Declaration
     
    Public ReadOnly Property CompoundArray As Single()
    'Usage
     
    Dim instance As ComplexBorderSide
    Dim value() As Single
     
    value = instance.CompoundArray
    public float[] CompoundArray {get;}

    Property Value

    Array of floating point values specifying the lines in the border
    Remarks

    A complex border can have multiple lines. This is done by drawing a compound line with a pen that has the pattern defined in the compoundArray. The array of values specifies the starting point, the start of each line and the start of each spacing as a percentage of the total width of the pen.

    For examples that show a complex border, refer to Creating a Complex Border with Multiple Lines.

    For more details on the pen object, refer to the Compound Array for the Pen object in the Microsoft .NET Framework Reference documentation.

    Example
    This example returns the compound array of lines for the side.
    FarPoint.Win.ComplexBorderSide side = new FarPoint.Win.ComplexBorderSide(true, Color.Red, (int)1.5, System.Drawing.Drawing2D.DashStyle.Solid, new float[] {0.33F, 0.5F, 0.66F, 1.0F}, new float[] {0.33F, 0.5F, 0.66F, 1.0F});
    FarPoint.Win.ComplexBorder bord = new FarPoint.Win.ComplexBorder(side);
    float[] ca = side.CompoundArray;
    MessageBox.Show("The first value in the array is " + ca[0].ToString() + ".");
    Dim side As New FarPoint.Win.ComplexBorderSide(True, Color.Red, 1.5, Drawing2D.DashStyle.Solid, New Single() {0.33F, 0.5F, 0.66F, 1.0F}, New Single() {0.33F, 0.5F, 0.66F, 1.0F})
    Dim bord As New FarPoint.Win.ComplexBorder(side)
    Dim ca As Single() = side.CompoundArray
    MessageBox.Show("The first value in the array is " + ca(0).ToString() + ".")
