BeginPath info  Overview  Group

The BeginPath function opens a path bracket in the specified device context.

BOOL BeginPath(

    HDC hdc 

// handle to device context

   );

Parameters

hdc
Identifies the device context.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

Remarks

After a path bracket is open, an application can begin calling GDI drawing functions to define the points that lie in the path. An application can close an open path bracket by calling the EndPath function.

When an application calls BeginPath for a device context, any previous paths are discarded from that device context.

Windows NT: 
The following drawing functions define points in a path:

AngleArc 

LineTo 

Polyline 

Arc 

MoveToEx 

PolylineTo 

ArcTo 

Pie 

PolyPolygon 

Chord 

PolyBezier 

PolyPolyline 

CloseFigure 

PolyBezierTo 

Rectangle 

Ellipse 

PolyDraw 

RoundRect 

ExtTextOut 

Polygon 

TextOut 

Windows 95: 
When constructing a path, only the CloseFigure, ExtTextOut, LineTo, MoveToEx, PolyBezier, PolyBezierTo, Polygon, Polyline, PolylineTo, PolyPolygon, PolyPolyline, and TextOut functions are recorded.
