    If you are talking about the GDI function LineTo, you need to create a pen with CreatePen and select it into the current hdc with SelectObject. An example is here.

    Hello,

    okay so i was trying to run the example, but it's not working out.

    I am using the GDI function lineto().

    But i don't understand why i have to make a pen? and it seems like I can't, i just get errors when I try to create a pen.
