Returns OK or error message.


The function sets the line width used to stroke paths.
The line width is also used to specify the thickness of the border of annotations and interactive form fields. In the latter case, the line width should be a multiple of one (or zero) and not exceed 3 units. Larger values are still correctly rendered by Adobe's Acrobat but the appearance can be changed when a Reset Form Action is executed or when other changes are made to the document.
