Mouse Tutor

ConASCII

 
If you are in the need for a fast simple way to make a menu interface where you can place your code in prewritten Select Cases, this tutor might be for you.
 
This Tutorial is for using the Mouse selection on the bottom menu Bar.  It covers creating the Screen, selecting areas that can be mouse sensitive, making first character of any text Keyboard sensitive.
 
It can be used to get the address of areas of the Console screen that you want to click on with the mouse and it writes it to a generated IF statement.
 
This will only support PBCC and none of the other Languages that Conascii support. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The tutor is created in pictures, so it might be a little bit slow loading.
 
 
The heavy blue line that you see when you move your mouse around is the selector.  You can select block areas or you can move the program cursor to any position by clicking twice at one spot.

It might look like a lot to do, but its not. Once you learn it, it goes fast. You can create a full working Menu that uses the Mouse and the Keyboard in just minutes instead of hours. 
 
Below is the Code that this tutor generated.
 
Because of the wordwrapping, the screen code will display funny here, but when you copy it, it will straighten out in the PBCC editor and not look so bad.
