CloseFigure info  Overview  Group

The CloseFigure function closes an open figure in a path.

BOOL CloseFigure(

    HDC hdc 

// handle to device context



Identifies the device context in which the figure will be closed.

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.


The CloseFigure function closes the figure by drawing a line from the current position to the first point of the figure (usually, the point specified by the most recent call to the MoveToEx function) and then connects the lines by using the line join style. If a figure is closed by using the LineTo function instead of CloseFigure, end caps are used to create the corner instead of a join.

The CloseFigure function should only be called if there is an open path bracket in the specified device context.

A figure in a path is open unless it is explicitly closed by using this function. (A figure can be open even if the current point and the starting point of the figure are the same.)

After a call to CloseFigure, adding a line or curve to the path starts a new figure.
