• Synchro JSOM - get char a

    From art@DIGDIST/BATTLEST/FREEWAY to All on Tue Dec 8 18:38:00 2009
    Hi all, time to get this echo started I suppose...

    As far as I know, there are:

    console.pushxy()
    console.popxy()
    console.gotoxy()
    console.getxy()

    ... methods, however none of them can get the actual character?

    I.e., go to (5, 10), and see if the character "$" is there on the screen.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks & regards,

    I haven't tried doing that, but looking through the functions of the console object, I don't see anything there that will get a character from the screen.

    So unfortunately, the best way to do that might be to keep track of the characters yourself..

    Yes, I have been thinking overnight... probably the way to achieve this might be a two-dimensional of ROWxHEIGHT... almost like an off-screen buffer. Talk about a pain!

    Thanks for your 2 cents as always.

    I know this message was posted quite some time ago, however, "get char a"; are you attempting to get the value of a as an numerical value?
