SP_UNBOX

UNBOX()

  Short:
  ------
  UNBOX() Removes a box created by makebox()

  Returns:
  --------
  Nothing

  Syntax:
  -------
  Unbox([cMakeBox],[nTop,nLeft,nBottom,nRight],[expRestScreen] )

  Description:
  ------------
  UNBOX restores the screen <cMakeBox> saved by
  MAKEBOX(). MAKEBOX() stores the dimensions and color in the
  returned string, so it is not necessary to pass these to
  UNBOX(). If the dimensions are passed, UNBOX() assumes these are
  not part of the saved string, and assumes the string is a
  savescreen() string. If the string and any other single param
  are passed, UNBOX() assumes it is a full screen (0,0,24,79)
  restore and does so.

  [nTop,nLeft,nBottom,nRight] - the dimensions of the box.

  Use these to UNBOX() a screen saved with SAVESCREEN().

  [bcRestScreen] This is a block which can override the
  default screen restore mechanism. If passed, this screen restore
  is used instead of the default. To set back to default, pass
  this parameter as an empty string "". If passing this parameter,
  pass all other parameters as NIL. What this does, basically, is
  set up a static variable which holds the screen restore block.
  Default is {|t,l,b,r,s|restscreen(t,l,b,r,s)} or if sls_xplode()
  is (.t.), {|t,l,b,r,s|bxx_imbox(t,l,b,r,s)} (an internal
  function within S_UNBOX.PRG) .

  Examples:
  ---------
   cMsgBox := MAKEBOX(10,40,12,60,'W/R,+GR/R')

   @11,42 SAY "What's up, Doc ?"

   inkey(0)

   UNBOX(cMsgBox)

   // to set up the alternate screen restore method:
  unbox(nil,nil,nil,nil,nil,{|t,l,b,r,s| ss_fade(t,l,b,r,s)})
  unbox(nil,nil,nil,nil,nil,{|t,l,b,r,s| ss_fall(t,l,b,r,s,100)} )

   // to set screen restore back to the default
  unbox(nil,nil,nil,nil,nil,"")

SP_MAKEBOX

MAKEBOX()

  Short:
  ------
  MAKEBOX() Draws a box on the screen and returns saved screen

  Returns:
  --------
  <cScreen> => string containing underlying screen &
  colors

  Syntax:
  -------
  MAKEBOX(nTop,nLeft,nbottom,nRight,[cColor],[nShadowPos])

  Description:
  ------------
  Draws a box at screen coordinates <nTop..nRight> and
  returns a string containing the underlying screen and previous color.
  Box will explode or not based on the setting of SLS_XPLODE().

  Default color is setcolor(). Default shadow position
  is the setting in SLS_SHADPOS(). These may be passed as
  options . Shadow position [nShadowPos] has allowable values of
  (1,3,7,9,0) to match the corner positions on the numeric keypad.
  0 is no shadow. [cColor] is a valid color string or variable.

  Examples:
  ---------

   cBox := MAKEBOX(5,5,10,10)
   //draws a box at 5,5,10,10. Color is SETCOLOR().
   //shadow position is based on SLS_SHADPOS().

   cBox: = MAKEBOX(5,5,10,10,SLS_POPCOL())
   //draws a box at 5,5,10,10. Color is SLS_POPCOL().
   //shadow position is based on SLS_SHADPOS().

   cBox: = MAKEBOX(5,5,10,10,SLS_POPCOL(),9)
   //draws a box at 5,5,10,10. Color is SLS_POPCOL().
   //shadow position is 9 (upper right hand corner)

  Warnings:
  ----------
  Use only UNBOX() to remove screens stored with
  MAKEBOX().

  Notes:
  -------
  UNBOX() removes the box and restores the underlying
  screen and prior colors.

  The shadow will not be drawn if it would go off the
  edge of the screen.
