create a line with 2 colours in visio

Hi
How do i create one solid line with 2 colours? e.g. red above green?
I cant figure out how to do it.

What if I wanted to make a coloured line with 3 colours, e.g. one line/
wire showing 3 colours like green/blue/brown say for a plug colours.

Thanks

The prefered Visio method would be to create a custom line pattern. You can
create create a short segment that has three lines twisted and set the
pattern to repeat (rather than stretch). If you then stretch the line, the
number of twists will increase. Make sure that the start of the line pattern
matched the end.

You can use the Line Color to change the colour of the wire. Anything in the
shape that is black will take on the line colour. If you need to keep black
in the line pattern, use an almost black. (black is RGB (0,0,0) almost black
would be (0,0,1)(0,1,0)(1,0,0) )
