AppearanceObject.GetForePen(GraphicsCache) Method

Gets the pen whose color is specified by the AppearanceObject.ForeColor property.

Namespace: DevExpress.Utils

Assembly: DevExpress.Utils.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public Pen GetForePen(
    GraphicsCache cache
)
Public Function GetForePen(
    cache As GraphicsCache
) As Pen

Parameters

Name Type Description
cache GraphicsCache

A GraphicsCache object that provides access to the pens and brushes used for painting.

Returns

Type Description
Pen

A Pen object representing a pen specified by the appearance object's settings.

Remarks

If the cache parameter's value is not a null reference, the GetForePen method uses the GraphicsCache object to obtain the pen whose color is specified by the foreground color settings of the current appearance object. This lets you obtain the pen more quickly, since it may already be stored within the cache. Otherwise, a new Pen object with appropriate settings is created and returned.

Use the AppearanceObject.GetForeColor method to obtain the foreground color specified by the appearance object's settings.
