LaTeX Parallel Lines between Two Blocks (Latex)

Tags:
  1. Oct 19, 2013 #1
    Hello all,

    I have two blocks, and I want to draw multiple parallel lines between them. This is the Latex code I have

    Code (Text):
    \documentclass{article}

    \usepackage{tikz}
    \usetikzlibrary{shapes,arrows,fadings, shadows}

    \usepackage{amsmath,bm,times}

    \begin{document}
    \pagestyle{empty}

    \tikzstyle{sensor}=[draw, fill=blue!20, text width=5em,
        text centered, minimum height=2.5em]
    \tikzstyle{naveqs} = [sensor, text width=4em, fill=gray!40,
        minimum height=12em, rounded corners, shade, drop shadow]

    \begin{tikzpicture}
    \node (naveq) [naveqs, name=S2P] {S/P};
    \node (naveq) [naveqs, name=FFT, right of=S2P,node distance=3cm] {FFT};
           
    \end{tikzpicture}


    \end{document}
    What is the best way to do so?


    Thanks in advance

    How about
    \hline{\textwidth}
    \hline{\textwidth}
    ?

    I am using Tikz/PGF package. I am not sure if the above control sequences work within. Besides, I need to control the positions of those horizontally parallel lines. In particular, I need two lines above the middle, three vertical lines, and then one line at the bottom.

    I appreciate if you can integrate the suggestion into the code to see how it will work.

    Thanks
