It seems fairly unpredictable, but you can say "set the dashes to  
10,5" for example, and in theory lines you draw will be dashed lines  
of 10 pixels on, 5 pixels off. In reality, the dashes you get are  
different depending on the angle you're drawing at. You can also say  
"set the dashes of graphic Line1 to 30", where Line1 would be the name  
of a graphic on the card, and that would give you alternate 30 pixels  
on, 30 off. But if you resize the graphic, the whole effect is ruined.

Read the help on "dashes" to see the other options there are.
