Q57343: SCREEN Statement Correction for SCREEN 3 and 4 in PDS 7.00
Article: Q57343 Product(s): See article Version(s): 7.00 7.10 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | SR# S891214-90 docerr | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 8-JAN-1991 The "Microsoft BASIC 7.0: Language Reference" manual for Microsoft BASIC PDS Versions 7.00 and 7.10 incorrectly documents SCREEN modes 3 and 4. Page 311 incorrectly states that SCREEN mode 3 supports Olivetti or AT&T Adapter Boards and that SCREEN mode 4 supports Hercules graphics capabilities. This information applies to Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) versions 7.00 and 7.10 for MS-DOS. The correct entries under the SCREEN statement for SCREEN modes 3 and 4 are included in the QBX.EXE Microsoft Advisor online Help system and appear as follows: SCREEN 3: Hercules adapter required, monochrome monitor only - 720 x 348 graphics - 80 x 25 text format, 9 x 14 character box - 2 screen pages (1 only if a second display adapter is installed) - PALETTE statement not supported SCREEN 4: - Supports Olivetti (R) Personal Computers models M24, M240, M28, M280, M380, M380/C, M380/T and AT&T (R) Personal Computers 6300 series - 640 x 400 graphics - 80 x 25 text format, 8 x 16 character box - 1 of 16 colors assigned as the foreground color (selected by the COLOR statement); background is fixed at black
