Cursor not shown

Postby BasicJan » Oct 11, 2005 20:23

By means of the third (optional) parameter of the LOCATE-statement the cursor can be turned on and off.

However I never see any cursor at all.

Try
SCREEN 17 ' or any other screen mode
CLS
LOCATE ,,1 'Show cursor
INPUT "Test";T$

This problem is known but I don't know how to fix it in a suitable way. I'll have to take a look at this. Maybe we should let the "driver" draw this cursor? Phew, this could become a bunch of changes ...

Regards,

That is propably why QuickBasic uses a mask to define the cursor.
The mask indicates the area (pixels) within a character to be inverted and reinverted in the rhythm of the cursor blinking.

But I don't have any idea how to realise this either.....
