The CreatePenIndirect function creates a logical cosmetic pen that has the style, width, and color specified in a structure.
HPEN CreatePenIndirect( const LOGPEN *plpen );
Pointer to a LOGPEN structure that specifies the pen's style, width, and color.
If the function succeeds, the return value is a handle that identifies a logical cosmetic pen.
If the function fails, the return value is NULL.
After an application creates a logical pen, it can select that pen into a device context by calling the SelectObject function. After a pen is selected into a device context, it can be used to draw lines and curves.
When you no longer need the pen, call the DeleteObject function to delete it.
