To complete the collection of drawing commands and picture comments that define your picture, use the ClosePicture procedure.

PROCEDURE ClosePicture;
The ClosePicture procedure stops collecting drawing commands and picture comments for the currently open picture. You should perform one and only one call to ClosePicture for every call to the OpenCPicture (or OpenPicture) function.

The ClosePicture procedure calls the ShowPen procedure, balancing the call made by OpenCPicture (or OpenPicture) to the HidePen procedure.

The ShowPen and HidePen procedures are described in the chapter "QuickDraw Drawing" in this book.

Listing 7-1 on page 7-10 illustrates the use of the ClosePicture procedure.
