Syntax   Draw.DashedLine (x1, y1, x2, y2, lineStyle, Color : int)

Description   The Draw.DashedLine procedure is used to draw a dotted or dashed line on the screen from (x1, y1) to (x2, y2) using the specified Color.

There are five possible line styles: drawSolid Draws a solid line (same as Draw.Line) drawDash Draws a dashed line drawDot Draws a dotted line drawDashDot Draws a line that alternates dashes and dots drawDashDotDot Draws a line that alternates dash and dot-dot
