Static Sub LineWidth ( Width As Float )
Specify the width of rasterized lines.
Specifies the width of rasterized lines.
The initial value is 1.
specifies the rasterized width of both aliased and antialiased
Using a line width other than 1 has different effects,
depending on whether line antialiasing is enabled.
To enable and disable line antialiasing, call
Gl.Enable and Gl.Disable
with argument Gl.LINE_SMOOTH. Line
antialiasing is initially
If line antialiasing is disabled,
the actual width is determined by rounding the supplied width
to the nearest integer.
(If the rounding results in the value 0,
it is as if the line width were 1.)
pixels are filled in each column that is rasterized,
is the rounded value of width
pixels are filled in each row that is rasterized.
If antialiasing is enabled,
line rasterization produces a fragment for each pixel square
that intersects the region lying within the rectangle having width
equal to the current line width,
length equal to the actual length of the line,
and centered on the mathematical line segment.
The coverage value for each fragment is the window coordinate area
of the intersection of the rectangular region with the corresponding
This value is saved and used in the final rasterization step.
Not all widths can be supported when line antialiasing is enabled. If an
unsupported width is requested, the nearest supported width is used.
Only width 1 is guaranteed to be supported; others depend on the
implementation. Likewise, there is a range for aliased line widths as well.
To query the range of supported widths and the size
difference between supported widths within the range, call Gl.Get
with arguments Gl.ALIASED_LINE_WIDTH_RANGE,
Gl.SMOOTH_LINE_WIDTH_RANGE, and Gl.SMOOTH_LINE_WIDTH_GRANULARITY.
The line width specified by Gl.LineWidth
is always returned when Gl.LINE_WIDTH
Clamping and rounding for aliased and antialiased lines have no effect on the specified value.
Nonantialiased line width may be clamped to an implementation-dependent maximum. Call Gl.Get
with Gl.ALIASED_LINE_WIDTH_RANGE to determine the maximum width.
In OpenGL 1.2, the tokens Gl.LINE_WIDTH_RANGE and Gl.LINE_WIDTH_GRANULARITY were replaced by Gl.ALIASED_LINE_WIDTH_RANGE,
Gl.SMOOTH_LINE_WIDTH_RANGE, and Gl.SMOOTH_LINE_WIDTH_GRANULARITY. The old names are retained for backward compatibility, but should not be used in new code.
Gl.INVALID_VALUE is generated if width
is less than or equal to 0.
