DirectDrawGraphicsMBS.CreateSolidColorBrush(red as Single, green as Single, blue as Single, alpha as Single = 1.0) as Boolean
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux iOS Targets
method Windows MBS Win Plugin 20.3 ❌ No ✅ Yes ❌ No ❌ No Desktop, Console & Web
Function: Creates a new solid color brush that has the specified color and a base opacity of 1.0.

DirectDrawGraphicsMBS.CreateStrokeStyle(startCap as Integer = 0, endCap as Integer = 0, dashCap as Integer = 0, lineJoin as Integer = 0, miterLimit as Single = 1.0, dashStyle as Integer = 0, dashOffset as Single = 0, Dashes() as Single = nil) as Boolean
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux iOS Targets
method Windows MBS Win Plugin 20.3 ❌ No ✅ Yes ❌ No ❌ No Desktop, Console & Web
Function: Creates an stroke style that describes start cap, dash pattern, and other features of a stroke.
Notes:
Creates and sets the stroke style. Returns true on success and false on failure.

startCapThe cap applied to the start of all the open figures in a stroked geometry.
endCapThe cap applied to the end of all the open figures in a stroked geometry.
dashCapThe shape at either end of each dash segment.
lineJoinA value that describes how segments are joined. This value is ignored for a vertex if the segment flags specify that the segment should have a smooth join.
miterLimitThe limit of the thickness of the join on a mitered corner. This value is always treated as though it is greater than or equal to 1.0.
dashStyleA value that specifies whether the stroke has a dash pattern and, if so, the dash style.
dashOffsetA value that specifies an offset in the dash sequence. A positive dash offset value shifts the dash pattern, in units of stroke width, toward the start of the stroked geometry. A negative dash offset value shifts the dash pattern, in units of stroke width, toward the end of the stroked geometry.
DashesAn array whose elements are set to the length of each dash and space in the dash pattern. The first element sets the length of a dash, the second element sets the length of a space, the third element sets the length of a dash, and so on. The length of each dash and space in the dash pattern is the product of the element value in the array and the stroke width.
