SelectScreen

From QB64.org wiki

This screen mode selector shows a list of common video modes found on desktop and laptops graphics cards, and some square modes. It has full mouse support. It also has the ability to filter video modes for a specific aspect ratio.

Some of you might have seen this in my previous graphics program. I'm now releasing it as a library.

It's a two-part library that can be plugged into any program (using $INCLUDE). It's two-part because it contains definitions at the start of the program, and subroutines. Originally, $INCLUDE was made for compiled libraries, so there's no default support to include QuickBASIC code inside them, which is just what I've done. Therefore you need two text files included at different locations in a graphics program.


Example BAS Code: SelectResolution.BAS Demo example should be compiled by QB64 only.

DEFINT A-Z '$INCLUDE: 'selectResolution.bi' PRINT "This is screen mode 0. Select another screen mode after pressing a key." PRINT "Press any key..." i$ = INPUT$(1) selectResolution 4, width, height IF width = 0 THEN PRINT PRINT "ESC pressed. Exiting." END END IF SCREEN _NEWIMAGE(width, height, 32) ' ' PRINT "This is your selected screen" PRINT "mode. Press any key to select" PRINT "another mode. To demonstrate" PRINT "that it keeps your screen mode" PRINT "in case you cancel, press ESC" PRINT "when selecting a mode." i$ = INPUT$(1) selectResolution 4, width, height IF width = 0 THEN PRINT PRINT "ESC pressed. Exiting." END END IF SCREEN _NEWIMAGE(width, height, 32) PRINT "This is your selected screen mode." PRINT "Press any key to end." i$ = INPUT$(1) '$INCLUDE: 'selectResolution.bm'

$INCLUDE the .bi file on top of your program and the .bm file at the bottom, after your own SUBs.


To create the BI and BM files, copy them to Notepad and Save as ALL FILES with appropriate filename extensions!

The $INCLUDE of the function should be after your main program!
Otherwise you would get the error "Statement cannot be placed between SUB/FUNCTIONs"
