I haven't actually checked to see if this works, but you should be able to scale the line in the vertex shader . . .

I havent worked with lines, but it seems like it should work.

Yeah, you are right. I was checking some of my old code where I remembered I used lines. There is no way to accomplish what you want using a primitive_line. If you want to draw lines of different sizes, you probably need to create four verts like this

D3DXVECTOR3 rect[4] = {

D3DXVECTOR3(-1.0f, 1.0f, 0,0f),
D3DXVECTOR3(1.0f, 1.0f, 0,0f),
D3DXVECTOR3(-1.0f, -1.0f, 0,0f),
D3DXVECTOR3(1.0f, -1.0f, 0,0f)
};

Then, make sure to scale it correctly so it represents a line (make it skinny) and then draw it where ever you need a line.
