Highs and Lows
#1
Hello folks,

Having finished (for now) Dungeon of Danger, I'm looking at my next project: porting Telengard from TRS-80 BASIC to Yab. For this one, I've implented new PRINT statements to work on a View.

However, I realize that I'm going to have to use inverse video (well, not have to, but it would be nice) but I can't figure out how to get that to work.

I know I can DRAW SET BGColor and HighColor to get that classic 'green on black' look, but no matter what I try, I can't get black on green, unless I set BGColor to green, which isn't useful because it turns the entire view's color to green.

I see there's a LowColor, and I have no idea what that's for.

So... is there an easy way to draw text while mixing background/foreground colors?

Thanks!
