CHAR_USE

Syntax CHAR_USE [#ch,] font1,font2
Location Toolkit II, THOR XVI

This command allows you to attach substitute fonts in QDOS format to the specified window channel (default #1).

CHAR_USE will attach the two fonts at addresses font1 and font2 to the window in place of the current system fonts.

When a character is printed, if it cannot be found at either font1 or font2, then the first character of the second font will be used.

To return to the current system fonts on the specified window, use font1=0 or font2=0 as appropriate.

If you use the value of -1 as one of the parameters, then that font attached to the specified channel will not be altered by this command.

Example

CHAR_USE #3,font_address,0

resets the first font in #3 to the font stored at font_address in memory.

NOTE

This command will have no effect on a window OPENed over the Network.
