The PMAP statement returns the physical or WINDOW view port coordinates.
- PMAP (coordinate, function_number%)
- The coordinate is the coordinate point to be mapped.
- The function can have one of four values:
- 0 = Maps view port coordinate to physical x screen coordinate
- 1 = Maps view port coordinate to physical y screen coordinate
- 2 = Maps physical screen coordinate to view port x coordinate
- 3 = Maps physical screen coordinate to view port y coordinate
- The four PMAP functions allow the user to find equal point locations between the view coordinates created with the WINDOW statement and the physical screen coordinates of the viewport as defined by the VIEW statement.
- Mouse co-ordinates returned by _MOUSEX and _MOUSEY are the physical screen co-ordinates.
Example: Use PMAP to convert coordinate values from view to screen coordinates and from screen coordinates to view coordinates.
SCREEN 12 'Coordinates of upper-left corner of the window is defined in following statement are (90,100) WINDOW SCREEN (90, 100)-(200, 200) 'coordinates of lower-right 'corner are 200, 200. X = PMAP(90, 0) ' X = 0 PRINT X Y = PMAP(100, 1) ' Y = 0 PRINT Y 'These statements return the screen coordinates equal to the view coordinates 200, 200. X = PMAP(200, 0) ' X = 639 PRINT X Y = PMAP(200, 1) ' Y = 479 PRINT Y 'These statements return the view coordinates equal to the screen coordinates 0, 0 X = PMAP(0, 0) PRINT X Y = PMAP(0, 0) PRINT Y 'These statements return the view coordinates equal to the screen coordinates 639, 479. X = PMAP(639, 2) ' X = 200 PRINT X Y = PMAP(479, 3) ' Y = 200 PRINT Y SLEEP ' pause before clearing view port CLS 1 ' clear grahic view port WINDOW ' end graphic view port END
- Note: If physical screen coordinates are (0, 0) in the upper-left corner and (639, 479) in the lower-right corner, then the statements return the screen coordinate's equal to the view coordinates 90, 100.
