Property Value

RgbColor value which is used to draw and outline with this pen.


Classic GDI does not handle transparency, so it makes no sense to specify alpha channel for this color.

For the same reason it is not recommended to draw with GDI on the images with 32-bit ARGB pixel format. It will fill alpha channel (which is treated with GDI as meaningless) with zeros. From the other hand you can use it to emulate eraser tool functionality.

Default pen color is black.
