Not exactly what you asked for but easy to do: ContourPlot[{ Cos[x] + Cos[y] == 1/2, Cos[x] + Cos[y] == 0.35}, {x, 0, 4 Pi}, {y, 0, 4 Pi}, ContourStyle -> { Directive[Thick, Blue], Directive[Thick, Red, AbsoluteDashing[5]]}] ContourPlot[{ Cos[x] + Cos[y] == 1/2, Cos[x] + Cos[y] == 0.65}, {x, 0, 4 Pi}, {y, 0, 4 Pi}, ContourStyle -> { Directive[Thick, Blue], Directive[Thick, Red, AbsoluteDashing[5]]}] Bob Hanlon ---- Jon <jkparry at hotmail.com> wrote: ============= Hi All I'd like to plot contour lines consisting of a solid line with short diagonal lines on one side, something like this -------------------- <---(solid line along the contour) ///////////////// <---(short diagonal lines on one side) I'm making a plot of experimental data and I want to show that the region on one side of the contour is allowed while the other side is not. I don't want resort to shading the entire region because it is quite a busy figure and the colouring will make it difficult to read. Is there a ContourStyle which does this? If not, can I create my own ContourStyle which can? Thanks in advance! Jon
