Using Text Colors

SETTEXTCOLORRGB
(or
SETTEXTCOLOR
) and
SETBKCOLORRGB
(or
SETBKCOLOR
) set the foreground and background colors for text output. All use a single argument specifying the color value (or color index) for text displayed with
OUTTEXT
and
WRITE
. For the color index functions, colors are represented by the range 0-31. Index values in the range of 16-31 access the same colors as those in the range of 0-15.
You can retrieve the current foreground and background color values with
GETTEXTCOLORRGB
and
GETBKCOLORRGB
or the color indexes with
GETTEXTCOLOR
and
GETBKCOLOR
. Use
SETTEXTPOSITION
to move the cursor to a particular row and column.
OUTTEXT
and
WRITE
print the text at the current cursor location.
For more information on these routines, see the appropriate routines in the
Language Reference
.
