: : hi! I just started programming in basic and i need to know if there
: : is a command to make font bigger! Easily! i don't know if this is even possible but if someone could help as soon as possible...that would be great!!!!
: : thanks
: There is no such command, but you could try entering screen mode 13, just put a "SCREEN 13" on the first line in your program.
: QB puts bigger text on the screen in grahics modes than in text modes.
: In graphics modes you could also draw your own font or copy existing text into memory and display it on the screen on a larger area.
: I'll try to make a simple example:
: SCREEN 13
: PRINT "Simple text"
: FOR x = 1 TO 180
: FOR y = 8 TO 35
: col% = POINT(x / 2, (y / 2) - 7)
: PSET (x, y), col%
: NEXT y
: NEXT x
: That looks ugly, because the algorithm isn't very advanced, but it does do the job.
: You could look for QBasic libraries that would draw big fonts. I haven't seen any, but I haven't really looked for them either. If you have lots of time, you could make your own libraries, it shouldn't be too difficult, just the font drawing is time consuming.
: Good luck!
: [/black] Thanks! I never thought of that, and the normal font looks like just the size i need. Maybe when i have more time i'll make a library...haha maybe. Thanks again.
