The Std DrawStyle command can override the effect of the ViewDisplay Mode property of objects in a 3D view.
- There are several ways to invoke the command:
- Click on the black down arrow to the right of the Std DrawStyle button and select a style from the flyout.
- In the menu go to View → Draw style and select a style.
- In the 3D view context menu go to Draw style and select a style.
- Use one of the keyboard shortcut: V then 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7.
Available draw styles
The As is style does not override the ViewDisplay Mode of objects.
4 identical objects each with a different Display Mode (from left to right: 'Points', 'Wireframe', 'Shaded' and 'Flat lines') with the 'As is' draw style applied
The Points style overrides the ViewDisplay Mode of objects. This style matches the 'Points' Display Mode. Vertices are displayed in solid colors. Edges and faces are not displayed.
The same objects with the 'Points' draw style applied
The Wireframe style overrides the ViewDisplay Mode of objects. This style matches the 'Wireframe' Display Mode. Vertices and edges are displayed in solid colors. Faces are not displayed.

The Hidden line style overrides the ViewDisplay Mode of objects. Objects are displayed as if converted to triangular meshes.
The same objects with the 'Hidden line' draw style applied
The No shading style overrides the ViewDisplay Mode of objects. Vertices, edges and faces are displayed in solid colors.
The same objects with the 'No shading' draw style applied
The Shaded style overrides the ViewDisplay Mode of objects. This style matches the 'Shaded' Display Mode. Vertices and edges are not displayed. Faces are illuminated depending on their orientation.

- Objects in a 3D view also have a ViewDraw Style property. This property controls the linetype used for the edges. The Std DrawStyle command does not override this property.
