I got freebasic for three days now, and leaning on my experience (from >20 years ago) with qb, dbaseIII/clipper, and several more obscure languages, i managed to get a program running in a rather primitive mode :-)
And now i want to give it a more useful face, by introducing an output screen (instead of an output file).
But that 8x8 font that i get in a graphic screen is horrible, so i wanted to get a 8x14 or 8x16 font, but whatever i try, i can't seem to get that working.
I'll include the relevant code, hoping someone can put me on the right track.
Code: Select all
dim shared col as uinteger
dim shared row as uinteger
screenres 800, 600, 16
color &h000000ff, &h00f0f0f0
Width col\8, row\14
? row, col
? "did the font change?"
