If the function succeeds, the return value specifies the previous DC pen color as a COLORREF value. If the function fails, the return value is CLR_INVALID.
The function returns the previous DC_PEN color, even if the stock pen DC_PEN is not selected in the DC; however, this will not be used in drawing operations until the stock DC_PEN is selected in the DC.
