6.9 Horizontal line

Name: »Horizontal line«
Line-A number: $A004
Syntax: See 'Bindings for horizontal_line'
Description: This Line-A function draws a horizontal line. The following Line-A variables are used:
Variable Meaning
   
x1 X-coordinate of the first end-point
y1 Y-coordinate of the line
x2 X-coordinate of the second end-point
fg_bp_1 Bit value of the first plane for the colour that should be used for filling
fg_bp_2 Bit value of the second plane (only low or medium resolution)
fg_bp_3 Bit value of the third plane (only low resolution)
fg_bp_4 Bit value of the fourth plane (only low resolution)
patptr Pointer to a field with 16-bit line patterns
patmsk Number of line patterns - 1. Depending on the Y-coordinate, one pattern will now be chosen from the field of line patterns. The index of the line pattern used may be calculated with (y mod (patmsk + 1)). By specifying several line patterns and using multiple calls of this function for consecutive lines, it is easy to draw complex patterns as well.
wrt_mode Writing mode; the following modes are possible:
REPLACE 0 Replace
TRANS 1 Transparent (OR)
XOR 2 Inverse (XOR)
INVERS 3 Inverse Transparent (XOR with not(LN_MASK))
multifill 0 specifies that only the first colour plane is to be drawn, a value >0 that all colour planes are to be drawn


Note: This function is used internally for the area fill routines.

The binding from TC passes the line pattern, writing mode and colour not to the horizontal_line function, but uses separate functions set_fg_bp, set_wrt_mode and set_pattern for setting the parameters in the Line-A parameter block.
Return value: The function does not return a result.
Availability: All TOS versions.
