Config Gui On

From BR Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Beginning with 4.16, a new display mode, CONFIG GUI ON, was introduced. In this mode, the screen is populated with "True Windows Objects", rather than an 80 x 24 screen of characters, which allows for a variety of opportunities for appearance and user interaction. Config GUI Off was also introduced to retain compatibility with prior releases.

In general, old code will often run in GUI mode, but may need to be changed for various reasons.

  • Print statements used to "Scroll" the screen or window, now they print to the CONSOLE.
  • Single Print Fields statements may not print two fields at the same screen location.
Example: 10 Print Fields "1,1,C 80;1,1,CC 80":"","This is Line1".
  • Multiple Print Fields statements to the same screen location will erase the entire field, rather than just the overlapping part.
