Hello I'm a new member here. I'm an Art student in the Netherlands. Started with QBASIC something like a month ago. I'm woking on a project to print computer generated designs for correspondence paper.
It is real big fun but also pretty difficult once in a while (Now at this moment, for example).
OK this is what I got.
I have all my generated text blocks.
But I want to:
- give X,Y coordinates to each character of text block A
- give X,Y coordinates to each character of text block B
(this part I have already almost fixed)
put the X,Y coordinates of blok A & B together. Sort them. So the coordinates will be ordered from row 1 (Y coord) and colum 1(X coord) to row 100 to column 50.
Than the sorted X,Y values have to one by one send to the LOCATE (LOCATE Y%, X%) function.
And then be LPRINT(-ed).
(That's easy. Also got that one. Something like this:
A loop as big as all the characters with LOCATE Y%, X%; LPRINT A&Bcombined$
next i..... bla bla)
So the difficult part for me is put the A & B text blocks together.
Do I have to use array's (DIM). One or Two Dimensional or even three A(1,1,A)???????
You see, I have kind of lost it here at this point. I hope somebody can give me some clues.
Thanks and everyone BEST WISHES!!
