Re: Trigonometry - inverse...

Hi Ivan, Assuming you know y and x, then you can just use ATN: theta = ATN(y/x) This will give you the angle theta, in radians. If you do theta = DEG(ATN(y/x)) you will get it in degrees. You will note that you need to ensure x isn't 0, or you will get an error: you can check for this, and simply as...

The line sloping up from the bottom left to top right is the hypotenuse, which is the longest s...

Re: Draggable handles

I don't know of an automated way, but when I want drag boxes I use xor plotting, so that it's easy to move/resize them. I often want to drag a box round something, and this approach works very well for that. What you want is a bit different, but should be doable that way?

Re: Adding new graphic modes

Hi Repton, If you refer to the manual, you will see that BBC BASIC for Windows/SDL offers a multitude of pre-defined modes (34, I think!), as well as the ability to define your own using VDU 23,22. That should fulfil any needs you have. Note that even in modes with few colours, you can redefine the ...

Best wishes,
