Note The DrawMode property setting is an Integer value.
Use this property to produce visual effects when drawing on a report. Microsoft Access compares each pixel in the draw pattern to the corresponding pixel in the existing background to determine how the drawing appears on the report. For example, setting 7 uses the Xor operator to combine a draw-pattern pixel with a background pixel.
