draw_line_width

Draws a line a defined number of pixels wide.

Syntax:

draw_line_width(x1, y1, x2, y2, w);


Argument Description
x1 The x coordinate of the start of the line.
y1 The y coordinate of the start of the line.
x2 The x coordinate of the end of the line.
y2 The y coordinate of the end of the line.
w The width of the line in pixels.


Returns: N/A


Description

With this function you can draw a line of a specified width between any two points in the game room.

NOTE: If you are wanting to draw a shape using a shader, you should be aware that most shaders expect the following inputs: vertex, texture, Colour. However, when using this function, only vertex and colour data are being passed in, and so the shader may not draw anything (or draw something but not correctly). If you need to draw shapes in this way then the shader should be customised with this in mind.



Example:

draw_set_colour(c_red);
draw_line_width(100, 100, 200, 200, 6);

This will draw a red diagonal line, 6 pixels wide, from point (100,100) to point (200,200).
