This example shows how to change the paint shape properties.

L_INT AutSetPaintPropertyExample(pAUTOMATIONHANDLE pAutomation) 
{ 
   L_INT nRet; 
   nRet = L_AutIsValid ( pAutomation ); 
   if ( SUCCESS == nRet ) /* check the validity of the automation handle */ 
   { 
      PAINTSHAPE shape ; 
 
      /* set the paint shape group properties */ 
      nRet = L_AutGetPaintProperty ( pAutomation, PAINT_GROUP_SHAPE, &shape ) ; 
      if(nRet != SUCCESS) 
         return nRet; 
 
      /* do some check and change to the required properties */ 
      if (PAINT_SHAPE_BORDER_STYLE_SOLID == shape.nBorderStyle ) 
      { 
         /* set the desired shape properties using the field masks */ 
         shape.nSize         = sizeof ( PAINTSHAPE ) ; 
         shape.dwMask        = PSF_BORDERSTYLE | 
                               PSF_BORDERWIDTH | 
                               PSF_BORDERENDCAP; 
         shape.nBorderStyle  = PAINT_SHAPE_BORDER_STYLE_DOT ; 
         shape.nBorderWidth  = 10 ; 
         shape.nBorderEndCap = PAINT_SHAPE_BORDER_ENDCAP_ROUND ; 
 
         /*set the paint shape group properties */ 
         nRet = L_AutSetPaintProperty ( pAutomation, PAINT_GROUP_SHAPE, &shape ) ; 
         if(nRet != SUCCESS) 
            return nRet; 
      } 
      return SUCCESS ;
