Re: Pens and colors

Great explanation, thanks!

Tried it (on OS4.1 FE) and it worked. I noticed that although the alpha channel part of is ignored, I still had to set it to 0xFF (like the docs say), or Text() would not show text in the chosen color.

Pens and colors

Hello, What is the right way to set a pen to a certain color and then use it from within your program running in a window you openend on say the Workbbench screen? My guess is that you have to use ObtainPen() and GetColorMap(), but after reading the AutoDocs, I still have no idea how to do it as I c...

Did not think of that. Thanks.

no way back

Shouldn't commands like NetShutDown and Reboot do nothing when called with a question mark with nothing entered?
I think a command that will do something as drastic as rebooting should at least ask if you are sure, or otherwise be called with something like Reboot FORCE or Reboot RIGHTNOW.

online/offline

Is there a command or utility that will enable or disable the connection to the internet quickly and easily?
I've tried netshutdown but that closes apps (which I don't want) and will sometimes wait forever.
Maybe the program Granite could have an option to block everything temporarily?

Re: Strange behaviour of Multiview

You are right...i never ever imagined that clicking *into* the Multiview window to make it active might cause Multiview to think i marked a character. Well, why would you if MultiView doesn't give you a clue? Maybe changing this behaviour to only *mark* something if at least one character has actua...

Re: Strange behaviour of Multiview

I think MultiView is saving a marked block of text of zero size.
I can save a file fine, but if I click on any character, and then save the file, it is empty.
If I save it again without clicking in the text, the whole text is saved again.

Re: Window size safety check

@tonyw I haven't tried to duplicate your invalid call I'm doing and then execute WM_OPEN upon the successfully created object, which is hardly an invalid call. The window opens fine if I specify WA_InnerWidth and WA_InnerHeight with some meaningful values. Now it came to me that I haven't updated i...

Re: Wide 'W'

@broadblues I still think this is a bug. The first letter of a normal text should not expand to the left (except if you're writing from right to left). Well, to be honest I feel like that too. Because I see no good reason for it. And to have to check for the extent without a good reason, needlessly...

Re: Wide 'W'

I can't see that there is any bug here, you *should* check your textextent before rendering text and make any adjustments required for negative values etc. I see, so not a bug then. I never knew you had to do this. I haven't found anything about it in the SDK. I wonder then why some fonts feel the ...
