Arrow heads?

Recommended Posts

I want to draw a line with an arrow head that is the same color as the line.

I tried the following...


I expected this to give me a solid arrow at the start of my line, but it gives me a hollow arrow instead. Below is a link to the marker list I have been referencing. Either I am referencing the wrong list or I am forgetting a step.

I want to be able to fill the arrow head with the line color.

Thanks for your help!

Got it to work using the following...


not sure exactly how the last number deals with size...

when i set it to 1 the arrow was huge.

when i set it to 100 it was the same size as 1000.

any further insight would be appreciated

From the VS Func Ref:

???Special Notes:

???Marker is obsolete as of VectorWorks13.0 (2008)

But, as long as the code still works try Option 0:

???Marker(0, 0.125, 15);

which will give you a filled arrow.

If fill color is not right, try setting it with FillFore or FillBack, OR, SetFillFore / SetFillBack.

You might also try using:

SetObjBeginningMarker() / SetObjEndMarker()

to see how they work. You'll need a handle to the object, though.
