# How to make the frame dashed?

I am using \begin{framed} ... \end{framed} in my presentation, does anyone know how to make the frame dashed?

Here a solution with mdframed

\documentclass[english]{beamer}
\usepackage[style=1]{mdframed}[2011/08/22]
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\begin{mdframed}[tikzsetting={draw=blue,dashed,line width=2pt,dash pattern = on 10pt off 3pt},linecolor=yellow,backgroundcolor=yellow,outerlinewidth=1pt]
Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text
\end{mdframed}

\begin{mdframed}[tikzsetting={draw=blue,dashed,line width=2pt,dash pattern = on 10pt off 3pt},linecolor=yellow,backgroundcolor=yellow,outerlinewidth=1pt]
Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text
Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text
Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text
Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text
\end{mdframed}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


EDIT: You can define the special environment in the header with the following code:

\newmdenv[tikzsetting={draw=blue,dashed,line width=2pt,dash pattern = on 10pt off 3pt},%
linecolor=yellow,backgroundcolor=yellow,outerlinewidth=1pt]{beamerframe}


Now you can use the environment as usual.

\begin{beamerframe}
Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text
\end{beamerframe}

• Thanks for your reply... It says File mdframed.sty not found... Aug 29 '11 at 17:43
• What do you use? TexLive or MikTeX and which version do you have? Aug 29 '11 at 17:44
• If I type latex -version in a terminal, it returns TeX Live 2009/Debian. And I am using Emacs and LaTeX... Aug 29 '11 at 19:47
• THe example works only with Texlive 2011 and the newest version of mdframed. For beamer you can use a solution of the threat which is linked by doncherry in the comment above. Aug 29 '11 at 19:57
