Create a closed polylines with filling
void DemoFilling (HANDLE hLcWnd)
{
  HANDLE hDrw, hBlock, hEnt, hEnt2, hFill, hFill2;
  WCHAR* szNameFill = L"Hatch 1";
  WCHAR* szNameFill2 = L"Hatch 2";
  
  // get a drawing and a block, linked with CAD window
  hDrw = lcPropGetHandle( hLcWnd, LC_PROP_WND_DRW );
  hBlock = lcPropGetHandle( hLcWnd, LC_PROP_WND_BLOCK );

  // check if the filling style with specific name already exist
  hFill = lcDrwGetObjectByName( hDrw, LC_OBJ_FILLING, szNameFill );
  if (hFill == 0){
    // don't exist, add it
    hFill = lcDrwAddFilling( hDrw, szNameFill );
    lcFillSetLine( hFill, 0, 1.0, 0.0, 0.5 );
  }

  // check if the filling style with specific name already exist
  hFill2 = lcDrwGetObjectByName( hDrw, LC_OBJ_FILLING, szNameFill2 );
  if (hFill2 == 0){
    // don't exist, add it
    hFill2 = lcDrwAddFilling( hDrw, szNameFill2 );
    lcFillSetLine( hFill2, 0, 1.8, 45.0*LC_DEG_TO_RAD, 0.5 );
    lcFillSetLine( hFill2, 1, 1.8, -45.0*LC_DEG_TO_RAD, 0.5 );
  }

  // create closed and filled polyline
  // the filling is solid by default
  hEnt = lcBlockAddPolyline( hBlock, LC_PLFIT_NONE, true, true );
  lcPlineAddVer( hEnt, 0, 10,30 ); 
  lcPlineAddVer( hEnt, 0,  8,55 ); 
  lcPlineAddVer( hEnt, 0, 30,70 ); 
  lcPlineAddVer( hEnt, 0, 45,38 ); 
  lcPlineEnd( hEnt );
  // set filling color (red)
  lcPropPutInt( hEnt, LC_PROP_ENT_FCOLORT, RGB(255,0,0) );

  // copy the polyline
  hEnt2 = lcBlockAddClone( hBlock, hEnt );
  // move the copied polyline
  lcEntMove( hEnt2, 40, -10 );
  // set filling color (green)
  lcPropPutInt( hEnt2, LC_PROP_ENT_COLORT, RGB(0,255,0) );
  // set filling style
  lcPropPutHandle( hEnt2, LC_PROP_ENT_FILLING, hFill );

  // copy the polyline
  hEnt2 = lcBlockAddClone( hBlock, hEnt );
  // move the copied polyline
  lcEntMove( hEnt2, 80, 10 );
  // set filling color (cyan)
  lcPropPutInt( hEnt2, LC_PROP_ENT_COLORT, RGB(0,255,255) );
  // set filling style
  lcPropPutHandle( hEnt2, LC_PROP_ENT_FILLING, hFill2 );

  // update view
  lcBlockUpdate( hBlock, LC_TRUE, 0 );
  // zoom extents
  lcWndZoomRect( hLcWnd, 0, 0, 0, 0 );
}
This will create a drawing as shown on the picture below:
