Interface ILineDecorationElement

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Subinterfaces:
ISimpleLineDecorationElement
All Known Implementing Classes:
SimpleLineDecorationElement

public interface ILineDecorationElement
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that control the line decoration element.

Description

ILineDecorationElement implements methods for other interfaces of line decoration elements, like ISimpleLineDecorationElement . You define a marker symbol, how many times it appears, and locations for a line decoration. In order to have line decoration elements that are different on the same line, you will create multiple ISimpleLineDecorationElements .

Method Detail

addPosition

void addPosition(double elementPosition)
                 throws IOException,
                        AutomationException
Adds a position.

Description

AddPosition adds a position where the line decoration element will be drawn. Values between 0 and 1 are valid. 0 indicates the beginning of the line and 1 indicates the end. Intervening values, like 0.25 indicate the percentage along the line that the decoration element will be drawn.
