To determine the graphics pen's location, size, pattern, and pattern mode, you can use the GetPenState procedure.

PROCEDURE GetPenState (VAR pnState: PenState); 
A PenState record for holding information about the graphics pen.
The GetPenState procedure saves the location, size, pattern, and pattern mode of the graphics pen for the current graphics port in a PenState record, which the GetPenState procedure returns in the pnState parameter.

After changing the graphics pen as necessary, you can later restore these pen states with the SetPenState procedure (described next).

The PenState record is described on page 3-33.
