Setting background color to hi-color.

Is it possible to set the background color to high-color? I'm asking this because I saw Edit.com can do it. Want to know what I mean? Start Edit.com, go to Options menu, and choose Color. Press Tab a few times to go to background color selection field. From there, you can scroll down to the bottom of the list and you can see that you can actually set the background color to high-color (in the Edit.com program, at least).

Anybody know anything about this?

    I never saw that on edit..

    You can do it, you have to use an interrupt and set a VESA mode..

    like 800x600 24 bit.. you can use any video mode

    in quickbasic..


    if you ever see this email me and I'll send you a sample

    on how to do it.
