Re: getmouse fails after reset (0)

Unfortunately attachconsole fails for me if the program is called from a batch file.

Re: getmouse fails after reset (0)

allocconsole () opens a new window but attachconsole (-1) reactivates the mouse in the existing console which is what I was looking for!

Re: getmouse fails after reset (0)

I recently gained full control over the 16 color table entries. I can change any color in real time from inside a program, which normally you would do with the right-click-on-the-title-bar console host interface. So I'm convinced you can regain control of the mouse, or do pretty much anything to the...

Re: getmouse fails after reset (0)

I attempted to use GetConsoleMode to look at the mode variable. It was zero before and after reset (0). So I wonder what reset (0) is doing to disable the mouse?

Re: getmouse fails after reset (0)

I never had "quick edit mode" checked, so it does not fix the issue for me.

Re: getmouse fails after reset (0)

I forgot to mention that this is a console app, that is, I'm running it in a "dos box". With the reset (0) in, x and y remain zero, or y goes negative. Both buttons return 0. And right click brings up the "mark, copy, paste" menu, suggesting that the console is in the wrong state...

Re: screen saver issue

I was able to turn the screen saver back on using a systemparametersinfo call after screenres had turned it off.

Thanks!

Re: screen saver issue

I thought it was sleep at first but have ruled that out by experiment. I've tried a couple of windows message monitoring programs and it seems that the fbgfx library is sending windows messages multiple times per second.

screen saver issue

I was writing a program to run all the time and display results in a small window. I noticed it was preventing the Windows 7 screen saver from starting. I whittled it down to this:

Code: Select all

screen 13
sleep


Something is going on with SCREEN. I'm just curious as to what it could be?

Re: windows 10 abend

Yes, that was it. Integer changes size depending on the compiler. This could cause some nasty and hard to find bugs. The FB wiki says this about the integer type: Syntax: dim variable as Integer dim variable as Integer<bits> Parameters: bits A numeric constant expression indicating the size in bits ...

windows 10 abend

The code below runs in Windows 7 but not 8.1 or 10. The program writes its line of text then crashes with the usual unhelpful windows message that the program has stopped responding. FBdebugger says WriteConsoleOutputCharacter is trying to write to location zero. Am I using the wrong library? #INCLU...

anti-globbing not working in 0.90.1

I started a new project and thought i would try compiling with with 0.90.1 instead of 0.24. i quickly found that COMMAND emits a list of file names in response to input of *. a bug?

extern _crt_glob alias "_crt_glob" as integer
dim shared _crt_glob as integer = 0

the -optionfile suggestion worked. thanks.

however i was hoping for a self-contained solution with no external files. the exact string that fails in freebasic works in a dos batch file, so i was thinking there might be additional length restrictions in freebasic that could be fixed.
