Examples

Example 1:
Draw a semi-transparent, blue arrow with default geometry:
myArrow1 = [_pos1, _pos2, [0,0,1,0.5]] call BIS_fnc_drawArrow;
Example 2:
Draw a wide, green arrow outline:
myArrow2 = [_pos1, _pos2, [0,1,0,1], [20], false] call BIS_fnc_drawArrow;
Example 3:
Draw a thin, red arrow with custom head geometry:
myArrow3 = [_pos1, _pos2, [1,0,0,1], [1,1/5,5]] call BIS_fnc_drawArrow;
Example 4:
Remove the arrow created in Example 3:
Example 5:
myArrow1 = [[100,400,0], [200,500,0], [1,0,0,1], [20], true] call BIS_fnc_drawArrow; myArrow2 = [[400,700,0], [300,600,0], [0,1,0,1], [20, 1/3, 2, 2], true] call BIS_fnc_drawArrow; myArrow3 = [[600,700,0], [400,900,0], [0,0,1,1], [20, 1/3, 2, 0.5], true] call BIS_fnc_drawArrow; myArrow4 = [[100,100,0], [200,200,0], [0,0,0,1], [20], false] call BIS_fnc_drawArrow; myArrow5 = [[400,400,0], [300,300,0], [1,1,1,1], [20, 1/3, 2, 2], false] call BIS_fnc_drawArrow; myArrow6 = [[600,400,0], [400,600,0], [0,1,1,1], [20, 1/3, 2, 0.5], false] call BIS_fnc_drawArrow;
