A plot style controls
an object's plotted properties.
A plot style is an object property, similar to
linetype and color. A plot style can be assigned to an object or
assigned to a layer. A plot style controls an object's plotted properties,
- Pen number
- Virtual pen
- Line end style
- Line join style
- Fill style
Using plot styles gives you great flexibility
because you can set them to override other object properties or
turn off the override as needed.
Groups of plot styles are saved in either
of two types of plot style tables: color-dependent (CTB) or named
(STB). Color-dependent plot style tables set style based on the
color of the object. Named plot styles can be assigned to an object
independent of color.
