    Hi,
    Below is a program to illustrate one way to use PALETTE.


    SCREEN 12
    COLOR 1
    LOCATE 10, 20
    PRINT "This is a TEST."
    WHILE INKEY$ = ""
    FOR x = 1 TO 63
    timerh = TIMER
    WHILE TIMER - timerh < .1
    WEND
    timerh = TIMER
    PALETTE 1, x + (x * 256) + ( x * 65536)
    NEXT x
    WEND

    The three values that are added in the PALETTE line are the RED value, GREEN value * 256 and the
    BLUE value * 65536. The color values range from 0 (none) to 63(MAX color).
    The TIMER stuff is so you can see the changing shades.

    Hope this helps.

    Dick
