ON MOUSE [LOCAL] example TOP OF THREAD

Post by mikeg »

Thanks to Patrick for helping me get this example of ON MOUSE [LOCAL] done

This will help in the case where a person wants to have ON MOUSE in a procedure or function. Very handy.

This is the current working example that also extracts the location of the mouse coordinates to xpos% and ypos% and passes the mouse button number to mb%

Code: Select all

      MODE 8
      PRINT"Start of program"
      REM: Set a mouse interrupt with ON MOUSE
      REM ON MOUSE: PRINT" ON MOUSE interrupt. Ending program with END. Bye":END:RETURN
      MOVE 100,100:PRINT "left click on the box and hold for 2 seconds"
      RECTANGLE 200,200,50,50
      REPEAT
        REM ON MOUSE  PROCmouse(@wparam%,@lparam%):RETURN :REM required
        PROCmoutest
        WAIT 5
      UNTIL FALSE
      END
      REM thanks to Patrick for finding the usage solution for ON MOUSE LOCAL
      DEFPROCmoutest
      REM Getting a response from a mouse interupt
      REM: Set a local mouse interrupt with ON MOUSE LOCAL
      ON MOUSE LOCAL:  E%=TRUE: RETURN:REM ON MOUSE LOCAL interrupt. Setting E% in order to exit loop":
      LOCAL E%,xpos%,ypos%,y%,mb%
      REM "Now entering a REPEAT loop testing variable E%"
      REPEAT
        WAIT 1
      UNTIL E% :REM LOCAL E% makes E%=0: if E% becomes -1 then it is TRUE (which explains E%=TRUE....hmmmm)
      xpos% = (@lparam% AND &FFFF) *2 - @vdu.o.x%
      ypos% = (@vdu%!212-1-(@lparam% >>> 16))*2 - @vdu.o.y%
      mb%=(@wparam%)
      REM now we check the area (200,200,250,250) for mouse presence and left button)
      IF xpos%> 200 AND ypos%>200 AND xpos%< 250 AND ypos%<250 AND mb%=1 THEN
        REM if a unique mouse button is held  it only will make 1 line
        LINE 250,250,250+RND(500),250+RND(500)
      ENDIF
      REM MOUSE STUFF ENDS HERE
      ENDPROC
      REM VERY NICE REFERENCE !!!!

I'm not sure what you're trying to do or exactly what trouble you're having with ON MOUSE. The examples you posted are a bit unclear.

If you're getting the "not in a subroutine" error, it might be that your ON MOUSE interrupt is being activated, and then you enter a procedure, and then you try to RETURN while still inside that procedure. That won't work, as far as I know. I think you need to exit out of the procedure and then RETURN.

So for example, this will not cause an error when you click the mouse:

Code: Select all

ON MOUSE: PROCtest: RETURN
REPEAT UNTIL FALSE
END
DEFPROCtest
ENDPROC
But this will cause an error when you click the mouse:

Code: Select all

ON MOUSE: PROCtest
REPEAT UNTIL FALSE
END
DEFPROCtest
RETURN
ENDPROC
I think this is correct, but if I'm wrong, please let me know.

I wrote this program while I was making sure I understood how ON MOUSE and ON MOUSE LOCAL work. Maybe you'll find it useful as an example of how to use ON MOUSE (LOCAL):

Code: Select all

      PRINT"Start of program"
      REM: Set a mouse interrupt with ON MOUSE
      ON MOUSE: PRINT" ON MOUSE interrupt. Ending program with END. Bye":END:RETURN
      PROCtest
      PRINT "Starting endless loop (REPEAT UNTIL FALSE)"
      REPEAT
        WAIT 1
      UNTILFALSE
      PRINT"Endo of program. This line should never be executed"
      END

      DEFPROCtest
      PRINT"Start of PROCtest"
      REM: Set a local mouse interrupt with ON MOUSE LOCAL
      ON MOUSE LOCAL: PRINT" ON MOUSE LOCAL interrupt. Setting E% in order to exit loop": E%=TRUE: RETURN
      LOCAL E%
      PRINT"Now entering a REPEAT loop testing variable E%"
      REPEAT
        WAIT 1
      UNTIL E%
      PRINT"End of PROCtest"
      ENDPROC

Ok... this now works.. Thanks for the help. I will now tweak this to make it nice for others to learn. I am picking out some of the possible most handy commands that have no samples aside from a syntax and trying to make a special help reference for everyone. Ill mention you helped in the comments. Thanks Patrick.
